A History of Photography
This selection of objects from the photography collection ranges from stereoscopic views made through a telescope, amateur snapshots, and scientific documents to artworks by Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre, Ansel Adams, László Moholy-Nagy, and Linda Connor, among others.
This rotation in the History of Photography Gallery was co-curated by Lisa Hostetler, curator in charge of the Department of Photography; Tracy Stuber, Kress Interpretive Fellow; and students in the master’s program in Photographic Preservation and Collection Management Sarah Brody, Delaney Duvall Linehan, and Candice Yates.

These playlists features songs inspired by the photographs in the current History of Photography rotation, plus one bonus track. To follow along, start at the beginning and move clockwise through the exhibition. The first playlist was inspired by the first fourteen photographs, and the second by the remaining eleven.
