 Photography’s early roots as a documentary technique, its evolution into the painterly style of Pictorial photography, and the subsequent rebellion against Pictorialism can be seen in the exhibition, “Pure Photography: Pictorial and Modern Photographs from the Syracuse University Art Collection” in the Mitchell Gallery. Iconic images by Éugene Atget, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen, as well as members of Group f/64, and modernist photographers Barbara Morgan, Aaron Siskind and others, reflect the evolution of photography from a documentary process to a fine art form.

“Pure Photography: Pictorial and Modern Photographs from the Syracuse University Art Collection”
was organized by the Syracuse University Art Galleries.
