Featuring photographs given in honor of the Museum’s 75th anniversary, Shared Lives, Distant Places highlights contemporary photographers who employ different photography styles—documentary, photojournalism, and street photography—to capture the global human experience, offering alternative ways of seeing and understanding the people, places, and events that shape the world in which we live. The exhibition provides a glimpse into the everyday lives of people, conflicts, and historical events around the world at various moments in time, and explores the working process of six contemporary photographers. The exhibition will feature works by renowned photographers Donna Ferrato, Peter Turnley, Kristin Capp, Alen MacWeeney, Gary Mark Smith, and Robert von Sternberg.
