    The Eye is a Door: Landscape Photographs by Anne Whiston Spirn

    Seeing is a way of knowing; photography is a way of thinking—Anne Whiston Spirn

    The Eye is a Door showcases the photographic work of world-renowned writer, scholar, and landscape architect Anne Whiston Spirn.  This is the first major exhibition to explore how Spirn’s photographs encourage a deeper understanding of the natural and built environment through the development of visual literacy–the ability to read and analyze visual information. This approach to learning allows people to question and interpret what they see, which has broad implications across many fields of inquiry and design.  Spirn views photography as a tool that helps hone this ability by focusing attention on significant details in the landscape in order to discover the invisible. She has been on the forefront of the movement to make this kind of visual thinking a fundamental part of people’s daily lives.
