Seneca Ray Stoddard: Capturing the Adirondacks

June 29, 2012 to February 24, 2013
Crossroads Gallery

Our 21st-century appreciation of the Adirondacks is certainly derived from this area’s obvious natural beauty.  That perception has also been influenced by the descriptions and practices of the many 19th-century tourists who came to visit the landscape.  Seneca Ray Stoddard was a leading figure in inspiring people, through his photographs and writings, to visit the Adirondacks in the post-Civil War era.  His work captured how people came and what they did to make the Adirondacks a sought-after destination. 

 

The exhibition will feature over 100 of Stoddard’s Adirondack scenes, and will also include his images of the Statue of Liberty.
