Photo Friday - 'Signs and Symbols'

Photo Fridays offer an exclusive themed selection from the Center for Creative Photography’s renowned collection of photographs – unframed for close inspection in the second-floor viewing room – every month. The October theme is "Signs and Symbols." Signs and symbols inhabit our daily lives as well as our memories. They are images, marks and representations that evoke emotional responses while informing and recalling our existence. This viewing presents work by Lee Friedlander, Robert Frank, Carrie Mae Weems, Charles Harbutt, Ann Parker, Kozo Miyoshi, Ralph Gibson, Marion Palfi, W. Eugene Smith, Aaron Siskind and Jeffrey Wolin.
