      Measuring the World Photography, Geography and Description

      This inventive exhibition explores the camera as a device for measuring the world, mediating relations between individuals and their environments. Developed from the Davis’s extensive collection of historic to contemporary photography, it considers ideas about land and colonial expansion, mapping, the World Atlas, the question of scale, travel, tourism, and globalization, the photograph as document, the archive, the body, society, being, and co-habitation. Measuring the World proposes an interdisciplinary approach, recognizing that photography is both an aesthetic and a scientific practice, or rather that the two histories are often intertwined.

      Curated by Ileana L. Selejan, Linda Wyatt Gruber '66 Curatorial Fellow in Photography, the exhibition is generously supported by The Constance Rhind Robey ‘81 Fund for Museum Exhibitions.

      Museum hours: Tuesday - Sunday, 11:00AM - 5:00PM

      Cost: Free -
