Wanderlust: Travel Photography from the Syracuse
University Art Collection

August 18, 2016 – May 14, 2017


Defined by the Photographic Society of America as an image that expresses the characteristic features or culture of a land as they are found naturally, with no geographic limitations, the genre of travel photography has intrigued artists since the dawn of photography in the 1830s.  This exhibition of over twenty original photographs explores how a variety of artists from the late 1800s until today have captured landscapes, either near or far, in order to give viewers a glimpse of diverse and varied places.
