The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

During the early 20th century, Pictorialist photographer Anne Brigman regularly hiked and camped in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, photographing the rugged landscape with her 4×5-inch view camera. She later recalled, “I slowly found my power with the camera among the junipers and tamarack pines of the high, storm-swept altitudes.” Toughened to Wind and Sun explores more than a century of landscape photographs created by more than 30 women. Drawn almost entirely from the Portland Art Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition celebrates a critical, vibrant and underrepresented aspect of photographic history.
