Nineteenth-century Photography from the Collection
August 26, 2011 - October 23, 2011
The Ackland’s collection of photography encompasses many historical highlights from its most noted original practitioners. As a fledgling medium characterized by formal and technological experimentation, nineteenth-century photography encouraged diverse approaches. This gallery offers a glimpse into the breadth of those subjects, including still-lifes, documentary scenes, landscapes, portraiture, staged personae, and studies by painters.
