“The Europeans”
530 N. 13th St.

Photographer Tina Barney will be highlighted at the Haggerty for her nuanced approach. “The Europeans” is an American perspective on grand European families. Before photography, it was customary for rich families to hire painters for the patriarch's portrait. Barney used her camera to capture semi- authentic moments of everyday life and portraits. She focused her camera not on the customary idealized individual, but on various inanimate objects and colors. Viewing these photos is intense.
