13 Oct-27 Nov. The American Academy in Rome presents an exhibition entitled A View of One’s Own: Three Women Photographers in Rome.
The show features the work of Esther Van Deman, Georgina Masson, and Jeannette Montgomery Barron, three expat photographers whose images of Rome span the early 20th century until today.
Van Deman was an American archaeologist who photographed Rome and its surroundings in the 1910s; Masson was a British author whose 1965 classic The Companion Guide to Rome is still used by visitors to the Eternal City; and Montgomery Barron is a Rome-based American photographer who captures contemporary glimpses of the modern-day capital.
The exhibition is curated by Lindsay Harris, Peter Benson Miller, and Angela Piga, and the photographs come largely from the academy's collection.
