These selections from the Spencer’s collection of photography have been chosen to complement the course HA 580: The History of Photography. The photographs, including examples by Ansel Adams, Diane Arbus, Nadar, and Sally Mann, suggest the range of physical properties, subjects, and styles that have characterized and defined the photographic medium over the nearly 175 years since its invention in the 1830s.
