This exhibition examines the use of traditional publishing in cultivating a discourse around aerial imagery in the 20th and 21st centuries. Beginning with 19th-century literature on the innovations of flight and photography, the exhibit proceeds to addresses aerial photography’s increasing utilization in the 20th century. The show concludes with publications by contemporary artists who incorporate aerial imagery into their work, setting the scene for a second century of elevated viewing.

Organized by Jennifer Tobias, Reader Services Librarian.
