Enhanced with an introductory essay relating the history of photography at the Worcester Art Museum and across central New England, Keeping Shadows: Photography At The Worcester Art Museum by David Acton (Worcester Art Museum curator of prints, drawings, and photographs) and with contributions by Stephen B. Jareckie (Curator of Photographer Emeritus at the Worcester Art Museum) and Ben Charland (curatorial assistant at the Worcester Art Museum) provides a comprehensive survey of the development and history of photography in the United States. Drawing upon the museum's impressive collections of French, German, British, and Soviet photography, Keeping Shadows showcases noted photographers the "pictorial era" of 20th century New England. Originally serving as the catalogue for the autumn 2004 Worcester Art Museum exhibition and its subsequent national tour, Keeping Shadows is a truly seminal work of impeccable scholarship which is most especially recommended for academic library "History of Photography" reference collections.
