Focusing on twentieth-century documentary photography, this exhibition includes Aaron Siskind’s Harlem Document, a vibrant portrayal of 1930s Harlem culture and society; Robert Frank’s pivotal series, The Americans, a piercing look beneath the surface of 1950s American life; Bruce Davidson’s Brooklyn Gang, a moving portrait of postwar inner-city youth culture; William Christenberry’s Alabama Pictures, an intimate chronicle of the effects of time’s passage on the artist’s beloved South; Bill Owens’ Suburbia, an alternately humorous, poignant, and devastating view of 1970s America and the middle class migration to the suburbs; and William Eggleston’s portfolio 14 Pictures, a collection of the artist’s characteristically understated images in which the everyday is imbued with beauty and mystery. www.andover.edu
