From Eadweard Muybridge’s 19th-century photographic studies of animal locomotion to Richard Misrach’s contemporary chromogenic prints, Light Works explores the history of photography. Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Curtis, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon and many other celebrated photographers are highlighted in this exhibition. Drawn primarily from the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Light Works also features works from the Muscarelle Museum of Art permanent collection as well as important loans.
