Notes on Asphalt: America 1950-1990

David Lowenthal’s photographs in French exhibition

Notes on Asphalt: America 1950-1990

Emeritus Professor David Lowenthal's photographs of the American vernacular scene in the 1950s are featured in an exhibition, Notes sur l'asphalte, une Amérique mobile et précaire, 1950-1990, at Le Pavillon Populaire in Montpellier, France, from 8 February to 16 April 2017.

The exhibition shows the work of six scholar photographers who immortalized the landscapes of urban and rural America between 1950 and 1990. Each was influenced by the work of J B Jackson at Harvard and Berkeley, grounded in vernacular, commonplace, everyday landscapes.
