More for Members: Docent-Led Tour of Strange Light
Dubbed the “Father of American Surrealism,” Clarence John Laughlin (1905–1985) was the most important Southern photographer of his time. Explore an impressive collection of his signature photographs during this members-only tour on May 25.
Known primarily for his atmospheric depictions of the decaying antebellum architecture that proliferated in his hometown of New Orleans, Laughlin approached photography with a romantic, experimental eye that diverged strongly from the style of his peers, who championed realism and social documentary.
Strange Light: The Photography of Clarence John Laughlin features more than 80 prints in the Museum’s collection, including many from a landmark 2015 acquisition that will be on view at the High for the first time.
FREE for Members. RSVP by registering for your free tickets or by calling our Member & Guest Services Center at 404-733-4575 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.). Limit to participants per household.
