With more than 450,000 images from the 1840s to the present in our collection, Historic New England is one of the largest repositories of regional photography in the United States. Join Lorna Condon, senior curator of the Library and Archives, for a discussion of some of the most beautiful, engaging, humorous, and thought-provoking images in the collection.

In this online lecture, explore the work of well-known professionals and unknown amateurs, showcasing both fine art and vernacular photography. Lorna highlights striking landscape views; extraordinary images of architecture; depictions of people at work, at home, at play, and in the photographer’s studio; dazzling marine photographs; and the scenes of life-changing projects and events such the construction of the Boston subway and the COVID-19 pandemic.
