We will be showing an exhibition preview of ExhibitsUSA’s A Photo Album of Ireland for First Friday at Mid-America Arts Alliance.
This touring exhibition emerges from an ongoing democratic archive that is a celebration of ordinary and extraordinary histories, viewed from the perspective of private individuals and families. From the earliest photographs taken in the 1850s to the advent of the digital era in the early 1990s, these images reveal details about how people lived, worked, and gathered that official historical records may have overlooked.
The exhibition will present an extensive range of digitized images from early Ambrotype portraits and informal Box Brownie images through to 35mm documentary photographs and Polaroid images. The overall exhibition design concept will emulate that of a family photo album, with images of various sizes installed salon style.
