"Through These Eyes: The Photographs of P.H. Polk"
2000-08-25 until 2000-10-22
Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts
Montgomery, AL, USA

Prentice Herman Polk taught photography at Tuskegee Institute (now, University) from 1928 to 1938, and in 1933 became the head of the photography department. From 1939 until his death in 1984, Polk held the position of official photographer at Tuskegee University.

He photographed dignitaries who visited the school, the middle-class African Americans who sought out his studio, and the farmers and laborers who worked the cotton fields of surrounding Macon County. His portraits show the inherent dignity of his subjects regardless of race or social status, capturing in microcosm a glimpse of life in this rural Alabama community.
