Hoosier Family Album

Hoosier Family Album - Edward Raffensperger with Easter Eggs - from exhibit.jpg.gif

Your audience can view early photographs by amateur photographers documenting everyday life in Hoosier Family Album. When photography was first developed, it was practiced largely by professionals. As technology made it possible for the average person to own a camera, the subject matter of photographs became much broader. This exhibit examines how photography has been used to document everyday subjects in Hoosiers' lives such as vacations, holidays, education, religion, work and romance. Some of the scenes represented in the exhibit are children in a Hartford City parade, a group of Brookville cyclists readying for a country ride, the Greenfield baseball team preparing for a game and Christmas stockings hung by the chimney with care in an Indianapolis Woodruff Place home.

Ideas for use: Showcase photographs or daily-life items from your collection while this exhibit is on display.
