Photography occupies a distinct position, in that it is both art and journalism. Not only can photography be intended either as fine art or as historical record (or both), but a single photograph can be viewed as either, no matter the photographer's intention. Hence the person viewing an exhibition of photos may experience a certain uneasiness about how to react. Is this Art? Is this History? What's the Meaning here?

With Shades of California, happily, the only likely response is one of delight.
