    When Diane Waggoner set out to curate an exhibition on 19th-century American landscape photography for the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., she didn’t expect to discover such a clear narrative among the works. “One of the major themes that runs through the photography from this period is a constant balance between nature and culture,” Waggoner said in an interview with NGC Magazine.

  • New Website to Feature Photostories created by the National Film Board of Canada

    In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada will be launching a website in partnership with Library and Archives Canada.
