Work of 20th century photographers on display at Denison Museum

Installation view of Adger Cowans' work on view at The Denison Museum

The medium of photography, the capturing of light, affords one the technical ability to record a moment with tremendous accuracy and fidelity. However, the transformative power of photography is something achieved by those who go beyond merely documenting what is in front of them to reveal both the seen and unseen aspects of a subject, a place, or an event. This exhibition celebrates the photographic, journalistic, and poetic works of three such artists: Gordon Parks, Adger Cowans, and Eli Reed.
