In this exhibition, student curator Marisa Kurtzman '99 traced the history of the snapshot from the 1890s to the present. The exhibition focused on the snapshot movement as an artistic aesthetic since the era of Robert Frank, examining the power of such photographs to heighten one's awareness of the fleeting moment.
