Lot Details

Set of three works, "The Way," "Light Rhythm," and "Rosalind."

These works were contact prints made by Alan Ross from the original Bruguière negatives on 8 x 10 inch silver gelatin paper, circa 1976-77. Archivally processed. Ross made the prints in connection with a book on Bruguière by James Enyeart, the Director of the Friends of Photography in Carmel. Alan Ross was Ansel Adams' photographic assistant from 1974-79 and has been and is currently the exclusive printer of his Yosemite Special Edition (original) negatives for nearly 38 years.

The first image features actor Sebastian Droste in The Way (1929), a film that was directed by Francis Bruguière. The film was unfinished due to Droste’s death.

Francis Joseph Bruguière (1879-1945) was an American photographer known for his experiments with multiple exposures. In 1919, Bruguière moved from his native city of San Francisco to work in New York, where he met friend and fellow photographer, Alfred Stieglitz. Bruguière worked for Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar. He has exhibited at several major institutions, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
