“The Light of the Levant: Early Photography and the Late Ottoman Empire” traces nearly a century of photography in the region. Curated by History of Art and Architecture faculty Pieter Broucke and Sarah Rogers, the exhibition includes the work of foreign and local photographers, both professional and amateur, to showcase the various scientific, commercial, ideological, and personal uses of the new medium and highlight a network of circulation in which images transported ideas about cultural otherness, imperial desires, and notions of modernity.
