Unknown Elements

August 15 - November 08, 2015

 

Unknown ElementsThis special feature presents a selection of 26 photographs from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection about which some details are unknown. The photographs, from the mid-19th century to present day, are without the name of the photographer, or the identity of the sitter, or the place and time the picture was made. Five Cincinnati-area writers responded to these gaps in knowledge with poems, short stories and other creative responses which are presented alongside some of the photographs.
