Pictures Worth a Thousand Thanks

The Ransom Center would like to offer its appreciation to photographer B.A. "Tony" King for a recent gift of some of his work to the Photography Collections.

Tony King is a masterful photographer of landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes. He specializes in scenes throughout New England, and most especially his home state of Maine. His style springs from a classical pictorialist genre, but he has expanded the traditions of that particular background to include a much broader perspective. Viewers are especially struck by the manner in which the people of this region are given a vibrant role within many of his finest works. King's workmanship is almost jewellike — elegant, simple, and yet full of light.

The Center extends its gratitude to Mr. King for his generosity.
