Gelatin Silver prints from Mariana Cook’s most recently published book, Stone Walls : Personal Boundaries will be shown from July 21st to August 1st.

Mariana Cook, the last protégé of Ansel Adams, is best known for her intimate character studies of people both in and out of the public eye. Her photographs are held in numerous institutional and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Her recent publications include the much acclaimed portrait books Fathers and Daughters, Mothers and Sons, Faces of Science, and Mathematicians, amongst others. 

 In 2007 she departed from her portrait work with Close at Hand, a collection of still lives, landscapes and light abstractions. Most recently she published Stone Walls: Personal Boundaries which pairs her inspired photographs and beautifully constructed dry stone walls from all over the world with essays charting their history. 

Stone Walls was featured in the New York Times and hailed as a “remarkable design story” by the International Herald Tribune.

She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter, and summers in Chilmark, MA.
