Charlotte Brooks at LOOK


Charlotte Brooks at LOOK, 1951­-1971 is the first retrospective exhibition dedicated to the career of one of the most important American female photographers from the postwar era. Best known for her work at Look magazine between 1951 and 1971, Brooks’ output represents a significant contribution to the visual history of the United States at mid­-century. Developed around critical themes such as Charlotte Brooks at LOOK the exhibition includes vintage prints recently given to the Davis on behalf of Katherine Hall Page (Class of 1969).


Curated by Ileana Selejan, The Linda Wyatt Gruber ‘66 Curatorial Fellow in Photography, the exhibition and publication are generously supported by Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis and the Constance Rhind Robey ’81 Fund for Museum Exhibitions.


Charlotte Brooks at LOOK, 1951­-1971 will be at The Davis Museum at Wellesley College through Dec. 18.
