The relationship between vision and location
underlies "The Quality of Place: Photography, Space and Specificity,''
which runs at the Bennington Museum through Aug. 30.
The show consists of more than 80 photographs, as
well as three dozen stereographs, 21 postcards, and a family album. As
the variety of visual items indicates, "The Quality of Place'' takes an
eclectic approach to its subject. There is, for instance, the matter of
the show's title. It refers, in effect, to the quality of two places:
Bennington and environs, and everywhere else. The everywhere else
includes Egypt, Yosemite, Greece, Uzbekistan, and New York City.
The exhibition features photographs by Ansel Adams, Lee Friedlander, Lewis Hines, Clara Sipprell, Alfred Stieglitz, and others.
