An exhibition of pinhole photographs by Hampshire College alum Kate P. Freedberg will be held in the Leo Model Gallery at the Jerome Liebling Center for Film, Photography and Video from November 18 to December 14, 2015. The images in this exhibit represent a small portion of Freedberg’s archives, recently acquired by the Hampshire College Archives and Special Collections.
All of Freedberg’s works were captured with a pinhole camera – a lens-less camera that employs exposure times ranging from a few seconds to several minutes. Pinhole photos are characterized by diffuse light, often lending a dreamlike quality to the images. The exhibit’s photographs were taken during Freedberg’s travels in Italy and India.
Kate Pulitzer Freedberg ‘81F (1958-2010) graduated from Hampshire in 1985 with a BA in photography and received her MFA in photography from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston/Tufts University in 2000. The images in this exhibit represent a small portion of Freedberg’s archives, recently acquired by the Hampshire College Archives and Special Collections. The collection is currently stored off-site, and will be available for research in 2019.
Freedberg’s work is also held at institutions including the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard; The International Center of Photography (New York, NY); The Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, NY); The Fondo Del Sol Museum (Washington, DC); The Center for Photography at Woodstock (Woodstock, NY); the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College; and the DeCordova Museum (Lincoln, MA).
