Rondal Partridge was an American photographer. After working as an assistant to well-known photographers Dorothea Lange and Ansel Adams in his youth, he went on to a long career as a photographer and filmmaker. Partridge was born in San Francisco in 1917. His parents were etcher Roi Partridge and photographer Imogen Cunningham. In contrast to Adams, whose work focused on the beauty of the natural landscape, Partridge has documented the human built infrastructure of Yosemite, as well as changes to the built environment of the San Francisco Bay Area.
