Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
In 1975, Wagner began to photograph architecture, focusing on building sites, small industry, and vernacular structures. Wagner's photographs document the changing American landscape and explore sociological and political ideas about change and culture. In 1979, she began to photograph the construction of the George Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. Five years later, she photographed the Louisiana World Exposition in New Orleans. Wagner also photographed postmodern architecture at the Vieux-Port in Québec City, Canada, in 1984. Wagner is associated with the Society for Photographic Education.
