Abstract
Photography exhibit that weaves together the history of photography, the history of historic preservation, and the career of a preservation photographer with the Historic American Buildings Survey, the late Jack Boucher. The preservation of the built environment relies upon the photographic image. Preservationists use photography to document conditions at particular moments in time and to make aesthetic and emotional cases for the veneration and preservation of buildings through compelling, nostalgic, or critical visual rhetoric. Though photographic technology has changed, the importance of photography to preservation remains undiminished. 2017/12/07 - 2018/03/0...
