Signed in pencil mount recto. Printed c. 1970. While long-exposure photography has become ubiquitous and sunset photos cliche, Wynn Bullock’s “The Shore, 1966”, which is guilty of both faux pas, is anything but superficial. Bullock pioneered the deliberate use of long-exposures for seascapes in the 1950’s as an extension of his explorations in theoretical physics. In this example, the light from the setting sun reemerges from the wave-lapped sand, dissolving into the whirl of waves. If the world knows California by its sunsets and beaches, there isn’t a more tasteful image to indulge such representations.
