The year 1968 marked many changes for the United States. It signaled the end of the Kennedy-Johnson presidencies, the pinnacle of the civil rights movement, the beginning of Women’s rights and Gay rights, and the beginning of the end of the war in Vietnam. More than that, it meant a change in public attitudes and beliefs. Photojournalism had a dominating role in the shaping of public attitudes at the time. Now, the exhibition comes amid a time of heightened awareness from political, racial, and social tensions in the aftermath of President Trump’s election.
Currently on view at Monroe Gallery of Photography, in Santa Fe, is an exhibition featuring more than 50 photographs from one of the most tumultuous years in America’s history.
