Emily S. Macey Gallery

Photography has quickly become one of the strongest collecting areas for Polk Museum of Art. Over the last ten years, seventy outstanding photographs or photogravures have been added to what was already a solid collection. This exhibition includes work by artists of international stature such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Chuck Close, Herman Leonard, and Barbara Morgan, as well as many of the best photographers in Florida and throughout the South such as Clyde Butcher, Birney Imes, Joshua Mann Pailet, and Anna Tomczak.
