ArtYard is pleased to present The Past Is Prologue: Vernacular Photography, Pop Photographica, and the Road to Selfie Culture, an exhibition featuring vernacular photography from the collections of Daile Kaplan, W.M. Hunt, Nigel Poor, Pete Brook, and Cynthia Elyce Rubin, with original works by Marcia Lippman and Cassandra Zampini. This exhibition offers an experiential guide to the evolution of everyday photography from the late nineteenth century to Instagram, and charts a terrain comprised of unauthored and found photographs as well as commercial objects and images divorced from their original contexts. Works of vernacular photography encompass photo booth portraiture, family albums and snapshots, press prints from newspaper archives, and industrial catalogues.
