Beyond the Architect's Eye

Focusing on images of New York, the rural South, and Miami from the 1890s to the 1940s, Mary N. Woods explores the ways photographers used the built environment to explore not only the gulfs but also the overlaps between modern and traditional culture in America during the early twentieth century.
