Look Again: 45 Years of Collecting Photography

Date:
Through 4/14/2019

Photography is a uniquely elastic medium. It can fulfill numerous utilitarian purposes-recording personal memories, chronicling collective histories, or furnishing documentary evidence-yet it also offers dynamic potential for creative expression. The High Museum began collecting photographs in the early 1970s, and the collection now includes more than 7,000 photographs from around the world made by diverse practitioners, from artists to entrepreneurs, journalists and scientists. Spanning the very beginnings of the medium in the 1840s to the present, the collection has depth in American modernist and documentary traditions from the 20th century as well as current contemporary practices.
