AT FIRST SIGHT showcases the Wittliff Collections’ newest additions, featuring 46 artists/collections in over 90 images. All on view for the first time, this exhibition illustrates the range and scope of the Wittliff’s photography collecting goals. Inspired by their personal projects or working on assignment, these photographers have captured images of children, cowboy culture, celebrity, family, and nature. Also presented are documentary images that explore the people, customs and culture of Mexico, including everyday life, the U.S.-Mexico border, the influence of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexican and Southwest culture, as well as images that document the human condition—both tragic and poignant—across the nation. These photographs were created with a variety of photographic and printing techniques, including gelatin silver, photogravure, color postcards, pinhole, chromogenic and archival pigment prints.

Please enjoy these recent acquisitions to the Wittliff Collections’ growing Southwestern & Mexican Photography archive. The artists and collections on view are:
