The Bullock Family Photography Archive: Preserving the Artistic Legacies of Wynn & Edna Bullock

The Central Coast of California has long attracted a pantheon of photographers—artists whose works are appreciated the world over. Wynn Bullock and his wife Edna, who became a fine art photographer after he died, are among this special group.

For many years, UC Santa Cruz has been collecting the transformative legacies of leading California photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Pirkle Jones, and Ruth Marion Baruch. The university would like to expand its holdings to include the Bullock Family Photography Archive, a major collection of Wynn’s and Edna’s work that has been assembled by their daughter Barbara Bullock-Wilson, a UCSC alumna and widely published scholar of her parents’ creative journeys.  

Funding is needed for UCSC to acquire the archive so that this cultural treasure may be preserved and shared. Please join us in this fundraising effort and ensure that the Bullock family legacies can continue to inspire generations to come.

The first $5,000 of this campaign will be matched by a generous donor. Double your impact and donate today! 

All donations are fully tax-deductible minus the value of any thank you gifts requested. Every donation will be acknowledged by a note of appreciation from Barbara Bullock-Wilson on a frameable card of one of her parent’s photographs, including an interesting backstory of the image.
