Photography has evolved dramatically since 1970, when Andrew Szegedy-Maszak started collecting. This exhibition at the Davison Art Center highlighted thirty-three photographs acquired in the last two decades, photographs that reveal the shift from the intimate scale of small black and white (gelatin silver) prints to immersive large-scale color digital images.
