North Gallery

Photographs can capture precise moments in time, lending to the perception that they record the “truth” about people, places, and things. While painters had documented the region, photographers were tasked with showing the increasing scale of urban settings alongside expansive views of suburban and rural landscapes. The pioneering techniques of panoramic and aerial photography created more detailed and comprehensive images of cities, landscapes, and communities. Explore photographs from the 1890s and the 1960s to discover how Fairfield and surrounding areas appeared from panoramic and aerial perspectives.
