WHO? A Brief History of Photography through Portraiture

Through Tuesday, November 26
Norton Museum of Art

The Norton’s new Kenneth C. Griffin Building features the first dedicated gallery – the Jodi Ann Saltzman Gallery – to showcase the Museum’s permanent collection of photography. The inaugural installation of approximately 60 works will trace the history of the medium through portraiture. Beginning with 19th-century daguerreotypes and albumen prints, and ending with 21st-century examples by artists such as Tim Hailand, Shirin Neshat, and Arne Svenson, these works examine the reciprocal influences between photography and the portrait. Works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander, Dorothea Lange, Irving Penn, Thomas Ruff, and Lalla Essaydi also will be on view.

General admission is $18; Seniors: $15; Students: $5; Children 12 and under: Free.
Museum admission is free to the public on Fridays and Saturdays! 

Free Fridays were made possible by the generosity of the Lunder Foundation / Peter and Paula Lunder Family. Free Saturdays were made possible by the generosity of the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation and Damon and Katherine Mezzacappa.
