Steps Off the Beaten Path: Nineteenth-Century Photographs of Rome and Its Environs
October 11, 2009 – January 3, 2010
Explore ancient ruins and hidden architectural gems on a photographic walking tour of Rome. These photographers used the newest image-making technologies to capture views of the Eternal City, often creating complex juxtapositions of past and present. Drawn from the collection of W. Bruce and Delaney H. Lundberg, many of the works in this exhibition were commissioned to record Rome's historic architecture before it was destroyed to make way for modern urban planning.
