Suffolk University presents Photography in Human Experience


Photography in Human Experience: Images of New England is on view now through August 17, 2001. Suffolk University's gallery is open and free to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This exhibition presents a selection of images from the vast photographic collection of SPNEA. The images record New England life from the 1840s to the 1920s and feature historic photographs that explore the role photography played in capturing and representing the family, newsworthy items, science and technology, and intangible experiences. The images were selected for their visual impact as well as for the ability to address a particular theme. Represented in the exhibition are works by well-known New England photographers, such as Emma Lewis Coleman, Baldwin Coolidge, Nathaniel L. Stebbins, and Mary H. Northend, as well as by unknown photographers.

All the photographers in this exhibition are modern prints made from contemporary negatives of the original photographs or prints made from the original glass plate negatives. The exhibition is the result of collaboration between SPNEA and the Photographic Resource Center, Boston University.

The gallery is located in David J. Sargent Hall on 120 Tremont Street, Boston.
