Take me to the archived exhibition.

As witness to history, photographers endure glorious and unforeseen obstacles to capture a moment that would otherwise be lost. The preservation of a small or monumental instance is the backbone of this visual media. Photography is a silent language that reveals itself through visual storytelling. Its power is insurmountable. The exhibition is organized in four categories: People and places, nature and human nature, photojournalism, and material culture.

This exhibition was on display in the Information Room on the first floor of Morris Library from June 13-September 21, 2006.
