    • October 27, 1948: The Brooklyn Museum opens on October 27th a small exhibition of about 35 photographs by Forman Hanna. The exhibition will remain on view through November 28 in the Photographic Gallery on the second floor.

      Mr. Hanna, long resident of Globe, Arizona is well known for his interest in scenes of the west and south west. He has grown up with the science of photography itself starting with a simple camera costing $1.00 sometime before 1900. He now uses an old 4 x 5 Graphlex camera with which he achieves a good documentary record of these areas. He does all his own developing and printing.

      Mr. Hanna has received many honors all over the world, is a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, associate member, Oval Table Society, etc.

      He is represented in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum, Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, Los Angeles Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Sarjeaut Gallery, New Zealand, etc.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

    Prints, Drawings and Photographs

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation.
