From the time of its invention, photography has been both a means for creative expression as well as a chronicler of accounts of the world. Closely associated to this medium are archives, repositories for materials that, as a collection, provide a glimpse into times past. The Berardo Collection Museum brings into focus the relationship between these two timekeepers in the exhibition Between Memory and Archive, extended through 5 January 2014.
