A Discerning Eye: Julian T Baker Jr Photography Collection 

When: June 17-Dec. 2 2012

The 20th century has been called "the century of the photograph," an idea that the exhibition A Discerning Eye: Julian T. Baker Jr. Photography Collection posits through Dec. 2. This exhibition of 25 images was newly given to the museum, which also is celebrating the collecting passion of the late Julian T. Baker Jr., as well as his and his family's generosity as museum supporters.

A Raleigh native, Baker caught the photography bug in the mid-1990s, building a collection of more than 700 primarily black-and-white images by the time he passed away last year. This exhibition includes portraits, landscapes and introspective work by Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, Lee Friedlander, Graciela Iturbide, Kenneth Josephson, Michael Kenna, Dorothea Lange, Sally Mann, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams and Brett Weston. —Chris Vitiello
