Happy_DaysHauntings: American Photographs, 1845–1970
Opens March 6
Spellbinding images that allude to the ghostly quality and ephemeral nature of photography. In the 22 photographs selected for this installation, time rolls in rear-view mirrors and ocean waves, or across the sky in a passing phenomenon, a dirigible floating in the clouds.
