During the 19th century, photographs served as mementos of journeys or surrogate experiences for Americans and Europeans unable or too daunted to travel. Scholars also used photographs as official records of archaeological expeditions and by the devout to explore the places mentioned in the Bible. This installation presents 16 vintage photographs from the Cantor's collection, presenting a range of subjects including city views, picturesque views of holy sites, ancient architectural wonders, and studies of significant artifacts.
