The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents A Changing World: New England in the Photographs of Verner Reed, 1950-1972, a retrospective of the work of photojournalist Verner Reed.

Reed captured the images of a rapidly expanding post-war economy in his work for Life magazine during the 1950s.

He recorded the transition as New England meadows were lost to encroaching suburbs, supermarkets replaced fruit vendors and butchers, and small farms gave way to agri-business. His photographs of New Englanders employ warmth and humor in celebrating tradition, chronicling change, and revealing the wonder of a moment.

The exhibit is drawn from materials donated to Historic New England by the photojournalist and his wife, Deborah.
