WHO? A Brief History of Photography through Portraiture

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.

Organized by the Norton Museum of Art. Support for this exhibition was provided by the William and Sarah Ross Soter Photography Fund.
