There early images often reveal surprising talent, visual intuition, and honesty. Kept for many decades in shoeboxes and faded albums, the images are often cherished belongings that play a key role in defining the self as artists. This exhibition will b a close look at photographers' earliest works, paired with personal narratives about the images and their role in each photographers' development as an artist.
