Photo Museums: New Hampshire  

Hanover

Photography is a growing part of the collection, in part due to the interest of Dartmouth alumni who collect in this area and have been generous to the museum in their gifts, and in part due to an interest in acquiring the work of African and non-Western artists. The post-1945 period is represented by portfolios of such gifted artists as Larry Fink, Todd Papageorge, Stephen Shore, Harold Edgerton, Gary Winogrand, Ralph Meatyard, Olivia Parker, and others. A large recent gift of over six hundred works by the artist Sonia Landy Sheridan, many of them photo-based, shows the ways in which this inventive artist tackled the new imaging techniques of recently invented types of photocopiers in the 1960s and 1970s. Another large donation of approximately one thousand works by Russian photographer Dimitri Baltermants, as well as work by other documentary photographers such as James Nachtwey and Ed Grazda, have increased the museum’s holdings of journalistic photography. Several strange and darkly humorous images by Les Krims are complemented, for instance, by contemporary digitally manipulated photo-based work by Lorna Lux and Luis Gispert. Renée Cox, Carrie Mae Weems, and African artist Berni Serle touch upon constructions of race, while Fazal Sheikh turns his camera to documenting the dignity of African refugees. Other recent acquisitions include an odalisque figure by African photographer Malick Sidibe, a piece on Native American assimilation by Bobby C. Martin, and an image of pregnancy by Cameroonian photographer Angele Etoundi Essamba. A recent gift of a color photograph by Ed Burtynsky from his Shipbreaking series is joined by the recent purchase of Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra’s tough self-portrait taken immediately after she had exhausted herself doing laps in an indoor pool as part of her rehabilitation from an accident. In new media, the museum has acquired a work from Bill Viola’s Passions series, a photo-and-text work on the Rwandan genocide by Alfredo Jaar, as well as a video diptych by Lorna Simpson titled Corridor.
