Photography Coast to Coast

By Dart Admin    Thursday February 15, 2007

firstcooley.jpgWith bitter chill and record-breaking snowfall, coast to coast photography exhibitions in museums and galleries offer glimpses onto worlds as different as New York’s Lower East Side in the 1970s; Paris in the 60s; Bamako, Mali in the 50s; the remains of the Manzanar internment camp of the 40s. Kevin Cooleys 2006 view of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, in Norway, is more than enough to make you feel a little warmer.
