In this exhibition, we are highlighting the work of Richard Fish (1919-2005), an accomplished photographer whose archive has been donated to the Oviatt Library by Marie Fish, his widow. Fish was a prolific contributor of photographs and articles to such publications as the Los Angeles Times, Sunset magazine, House and Garden, the Chicago Sun-times Magazine, TV Guide and many others.
Richard Fish was educated at the University of Southern California and at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco where he was a student of Ansel Adams and Minor White, two great photographers of our time. In addition to his work for publications, he also photographed various celebrities, among them Arnold Schoenberg, the composer, and his family.
