In Ruin: Architectural Photographs from the Permanent Collection
Clarence John Laughlin. The Iron Faces (Windsor Plantation).
In Ruin: Architectural Photographs from the Permanent Collection highlights the enduring appeal of architectural ruins and the desire to capture the demise, decay, and impending destruction of man-made structures. This exhibition explores issues of memory, monumentality, and the picturesque through a selection of historical and contemporary photographs spanning from the 1860s to the end of the 20th century. In Ruin features work by the D’Alessandri Brothers, John Divola, Joel Sternfeld, and others culled from the Henry’s photography collection.
