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

The work of Doris Ulmann will be featured in a display of 80 framed portraits reflecting plantation life in South Carolina’s Gullah in the 1920s. The exhibit comprises stills from “Roll Jordan Roll,” Ulmann’s collaboration with Julia Petekin.

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.
