Everyday Art: Street Photography in the Syracuse University Art Collection
August 20, 2015 – May 15, 2016
The art of capturing fleeting moments and sharing new perspectives to reveal everyday interactions has an extensive history in photography. Ranging in time periods, geographic location and content, this exhibition presents a group of well-known artists, each of whom took their camera to the streets in order to capture visions of everyday scenes the majority of people may not be able, or choose, to see. Examining the work of, but not limited to, Eugene Atget’s turn of the century images of Paris, angled views of California in the 1970s by master photographer Garry Winogrand, and contemporary New York City views captured by Donna Ferrato, the images present the evolution of Street Photography as an artistic style.
