 The works in this exhibition focus on the art of street photography — a photography style in which unmediated and random encounters or scenarios are captured. While the majority of the photographs span the 1950s through 1970s, there are some examples from earlier in the 20th century to demonstrate the longevity of this photographic style. Photographers include Diane Arbus, Esther Bubley, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Garry Winogrand and Weegee.  Photographs are on loan from the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. Free and open to the public.
