The WSU Museum of Art’s winter exhibit, “Through the Lens, an American Century: Corbis and Vivian Maier,” showcased 32 of the nation’s most iconic photographs from the Corbis collection, alongside 50 images taken by Vivian Maier—an artist whose work wasn’t discovered until after her death.

The exhibit also included work from photography students at WSU and colleges across the nation. The students took the idea of social realism and urban photography and produced contemporary photographs to help bridge the Corbis and Maier exhibits.

The student photography project Hidden in Public View: Exploring Urban Photography and Social Realism can be viewed online at hiddeninpublicview.org.
