9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History"

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War.

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Ed Drew: Reflections of a Modern Tintypist at War
Artist's Talk

Ed Drew is the first photographer since the 19th century to use the wet plate process to produce tintype photographs of Americans in war. Staff Sergeant Drew deployed to Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in April 2013 as a member of a U.S. Air Force Combat Rescue Unit. Between missions as an aerial gunner for helicopter search and rescue, Drew made portraits of his comrades under very difficult conditions in the field. Examples of his work may be seen at the exhibition currently at the Adams Gallery.

Drew’s photographs show with an intense specificity the diversity of the men and women serving in the U.S. military. The tintype’s laborious production and long exposure time require the subject to focus on the process of having his or her portrait taken. In this way, Drew’s work echoes both the process and the tone of the Civil War tintypes, made as memorials to outlast the lives of the soldiers depicted.

NESAD, 75 Arlington Street, Room 259
