In Time We Shall Know Ourselves: Photographs by Raymond Smith

October 24, 2015 - January 03, 2016
Virginia and Alfred Kennedy Gallery

In the summer of 1974, a young man drove an aging Volkswagen from New England through the South and into the Midwest, camping and photographing people and places along the way to California. The car broke down in Kansas City and Raymond Smith took the train home to New Haven, Connecticut, where he printed some of the 750 exposures he had made with his Rolleiflex and Minolta twin-lens cameras. Few of these rare prints have been exhibited or published until now. These 52 images reflect the subjects, places and people Smith encountered.

The exhibition is organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama, which posted an account of Smith's talk there on its blog.
