Overview

Collection Period:
April 5th, 2006 to November 30th, 2006.

Like books and magazines in the Library's general collections, this set of websites complements the original and historical visual material held in the Prints & Photographs Division. Included are sites for photographers and cartoonists represented in P&P (e.g., Kuper, Prokudin-Gorskii, Rogovin, and Telnaes). Also, websites for new digital image formats (e.g., Wrist photography, Reicholdarts cell phone photos, and Micah Wright remix posters). Other sites document new ways of displaying the visual arts through virtual galleries (e.g., Alternative Museum) and new ways of respresenting architectural work and the built environment (e.g., McKissock, Pritzker Prize, Vergara's Invincible Cities, and Vignoly). Major then-current event themes include views of Kurdistan and the Iraq War.
