This two-part display presents a chronological survey of photographic highlights from the Museum's permanent holdings, with additional loans from a private collection. 100 Years of Photography considers a wide range of process and subjects, beginning with daguerreotypes and tintypes of the 1850s and proceeding through a century of photographic achievement. The photographic portrait, urban photography, landscape, social documentary, and art photography are among the genres and types on view. Featured photographers include Thomas Annan, Eugène Atget, Karl Blossfeld, Anne W. Brigman, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Frank Eugene, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Florence Henri, Helen Levitt, Nadar, August Sander, W. Eugene Smith, and Alfred Stieglitz, among others. This display accompanies curator Matthew Affron's spring semester course, The History of Photography.
