“Influence and Identity”

Now on view at Queens University of Charlotte, North Carolina, “Influence and Identity: Twentieth Century Portrait Photography from the Bank of America Collection” features the works of international photographers from the early through the mid-twentieth century, a period often called the golden age of portrait photography. The exhibition includes works by master portraitists such as Antony Armstrong-Jones, Richard Avedon and Yousuf Karsh, as well as renowned photographers Berenice Abbot, Ansel Adams, and Garry Winogrand. Using photography, a medium born of the modern era, these artists produced images that capture the commanding personalities of celebrated figures in popular culture, politics and the arts.

This exhibition has been loaned through the Bank of America Art in our Communities® program.
