The Light of the Levant

This exhibit microsite, hosted on the museum’s MiddCreate platform, features all the photographs and scholarship for The Light of the Levant, including wall texts researched and written by students.

Exhibit Microsite

The Light of the Levant, on view through December 10, highlights the important role of the Levant region in early photography. In its broadest historical meaning, the area of the Levant, controlled by the Ottoman Empire during all or part of the nineteenth century, encompassed contemporary Greece, Turkey, and most of the Arab world.

Organized into thematic sections that are chronologically arranged, the exhibition—curated by Pieter Broucke and Sarah Rogers with help from students in the spring 2023 course “Orientalism and the Visual Arts”—features photographs that trace a century of photography in the Levant, and documents the various scientific, commercial, ideological, and personal uses of the new medium.
