Jim Dow: American and National League Stadiums

February 2 – March 15, 1985
Jim Dow

Taken from the University's permanent collection, these panoramic photographs of our country's baseball stadiums - some of which no longer exist - invite close inspection of minuscule, but precise details of their architectural personalities. Dow, who began this project in 1980, was interested in recording "man-made creations that are extraordinarily commonplace yet smack of uniqueness." The technique he employed provides a view not of what the camera sees, but rather "what you would see if you turned your head," and from a distance, the collective images describe colorful and abstract patterns.
