Richard Misrach (b. 1949) is "one of the most influential photographers of his generation. In the 1970s, he helped pioneer the renaissance of color photography and large-scale presentation that are in widespread practice today" with one of his best-known works being this, " the study of weather, time, color and light in his serial photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge..." (n.b., from the web site of the Fraenkel Gallery).
