The Washington Post highlighted the new exhibit “Not an Ostrich: And Other Images from America’s Library,” which recently opened at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The photo exhibit was brought to the nation’s capital thanks to the Annenberg Foundation, after it initially debuted at the Annenberg Space for Photography.
“Not an Ostrich” is something of a homecoming. All the pictures are from the library’s collection, and the exhibition is the most extensive display ever of those holdings. But the show was organized by the Annenberg Foundation and initially mounted in 2018 at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles. Curator Anne Wilkes Tucker visited the library monthly for a year and a half, inspecting what she estimated to be nearly a million images, many of them undigitized and never exhibited at the time.”
