East of the Mississippi: Nineteenth Century American Landscape Photography
Pictures of the American West have dominated the canon of 19th-century American landscape photography. Although many photographers worked in the eastern half of the United States, their pictures, with the exception of Civil War images, have seldom been exhibited. The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) will present "East of the Mississippi: Nineteenth-Century American Landscape Photography" from October 6, 2017 to January 7, 2018. In association with NOMA, this landmark exhibition, co-organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, is the first to exclusively explore a vivid chapter of America’s photographic history—19th-century American landscape photography made east of the Mississippi river.
