On view at Duke University’s Nasher Museum, Beyond Beauty presents rare photographic material dating from the 1860s to the present drawn from the school’s special collections. Part of the exhibitions purpose is to trace the history of photography from the albumin print to the digital. There’s work from the famous Matthew Brady, From Lewis Hine, and contemporary artists like Guy Tillim. The collected photographs are complimented by a book Beyond Beauty: The Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.
