WIDE ANGLE: AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHS
Wide Angle: American Photographs is an exploration of the Art Museum’s collection of more than 1,300 photographs. Organized by Museum Curator Janie Welker, it offers an opportunity to see this diverse group of work in the context of some of the major themes in twentieth- and twenty-first-century photography in this country. Among them are portraiture and the portrayal of gender; the transition from traditional photography to constructed landscapes and an examination of the manmade environment; and the conventions of documentary photography, street photography, and images manipulated for psychological effect.
Wide Angle: American Photographs was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
