“Untold Stories”

For this weeks illustration, I visited the Eastman Kodak House. Rather than focusing on the actual visuals in the exhibits, I focused on how the exhibits were arranged and presented and how affectively it was done. Although this is somewhat different from what the Tufte reading referred to, I kept in mind the principles he was trying to convey such as quality, relevance and integrity of content in affective presentation. The current exhibit, titled Untold Stories, presented various collections of works. This particular one I photographed presented each photo as a small vignette that when put together told a larger story. Each photo depicted environmental portraits of individuals from approximately the 1940s to 1960s, such as people working in town squares or on farms. The simple arrangements of each set of photos, each of which were presented on a rich purple backdrop, effectively flowed throughout the exhibit, clearly defining each group of works while still maintaing a common thread. I was also aware of the use of Helvetica throughout much of the museum after watching the film in class.

By chance was the font used under each photo in the description also Helvetica? Were you able to find out if there was a certain reason certain stories were placed beside others?
