BROWSE PHOTOGRAPHS COLLECTION

In 1941, a photogravure by Edward S. Curtis became the first photograph to enter the Brooks’ collection. Presently, there are more than 1,200 works, the majority of which are from the 20th century, including large selections by William Eggleston, William Christenberry, and Ernest Withers. These are supplemented by a set of Library of Congress reprints of Farm Security Administration photographs by artists such as Marion Post Wolcott, Dorothea Lange, and Walker Evans. Recent additions to the growing collection are early 20th-century works by Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand, to Contemporary works by Carrie Mae Weems, Alex Soth, Vic Muniz, Marcos Lopez, and Fred Wilson.
