Photographs Are Ideas

Photography has been a lifelong passion for LUAG Director and Chief Curator Ricardo Viera. When Viera first came to Lehigh University in 1974, his priority was to establish professional standards for the art works he found.  To his dismay, he discovered—among the many paintings, prints, and coins which made up the fine art collection—there was only one photograph.  With this discovery his first IDEA was born: to build a teaching collection centered around works-on-paper, including photography.
