Photography of Doris Ulmann Comes to the Naperville Fine Art Center & Gallery!

Master photographer Doris Ulmann captured a piece of history in the powerful images of a vanishing culture. Through her sensitive lens, an authentic portrayal of 1920s plantation life in the Gullah region of South Carolina is preserved. Presented in a display of 80 framed photogravure portraits developed from original negatives, the exhibition comprises stills from Roll Jordan Roll, Ulmann’s photographic collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Julia Peterkin. Published in 1933 by R.O.
