In Sight: Seeing the People of the Holy Land

On exhibit April 3 - November 10, 2017
Kamin Gallery, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center

Early photographs of the Holy Land taken from the mid-nineteenth to the early-twentieth centuries by western photographers are famous for their timeless depictions of unpopulated landscapes and religious sites. This exhibition focuses on the different ways in which the Holy Land's inhabitants appear in these photographs and seeks to reclaim them as subjects in their own right, not merely as props in someone else's story. These images yield complicated realms of vision, imagination, artistic expression, and documentation and move from the studio to the dynamic activities of street life. For more information
