The Serial Portrait: Photography and Identity in the Last One Hundred Years
From its inception in 1839, photography has been closely connected with portraiture, expanding its scope and redefining its cultural, aesthetic, commercial, and technical possibilities. Arranged both chronologically and thematically, this exhibition features approximately 150 works by 20 photographers who responded to older portrait conventions and imagined new ones by exploring the same subjects--primarily friends, family, and themselves--over the course of days, months, or decades.
