Smithsonian's first major retrospective of Alexander Gardner's photographs at the National Portrait Gallery


Considered America’s first modern photographer, just as the Civil War is considered the first modern war, Alexander Gardner created dramatic and vivid photographs of battlefields and played a crucial role in the transformation of American culture by injecting a sobering note of realism to American photography.

On Sept. 18, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery will open the new exhibition “Dark Fields of the Republic: Alexander Gardner Photographs, 1859–1872.” It will run through March 13, 2016. A press preview will be held Sept. 16 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
