The Nattie Gallery opens two exhibits on American photography on January 18. Looking In: Robert Frank’s “The Americans” presents all 83 photographs from Frank’s photography book which is heralded as the most important photography book published since World War II. Held in conjunction with Looking In, Changing Perceptions: Reading the Modern Photography Book will display twenty-one books drawn from the Gallery’s library to show how the photography book is a significant conveyor of contemporary experience and a witness to historical events. Both are on display through April 26.
