This exhibition of photographs acquired between 2006 and 2012 includes many images that have not been exhibited. They range from portraits of Johnny and June Cash by Annie Leibovitz, and a couple dancing by Malick Sidibé, to a wedding photograph of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Whalum by Hooks Brothers Photography.  In contrast are close ups of plants by Karl Blosfeld and Aaron Siskind, as well as night scenes of Manhattan by André Kertész and Adolf Fassbender. An eclectic group of photographs, the images are welcome additions to the permanent collection.
