Presumed Innocence: Photographic Perspectives of Children
February 2nd, 2008 to April 27th, 2008
Curated by Rachel Rosenfield Lafo
Presumed Innocence: Photographic Perspectives of Children features images of children in vintage and contemporary photographs that range in
date from the early twentieth century to the present day. These photographic works of art were selected from the private collection of Anthony and Beth
Terrana, whose vision relies on direct emotional response to the dramatic and timeless quality of each image, rather than on any attempt at encyclopedic or
systematic collecting.The selectedimages fall loosely into the following thematic and often overlapping categories: the child alone, family relationships, children and animals, the child observed, the child at play, the child at risk, rites of passage, and constructed narratives.
