Duke University Libraries: Alex Harris Photographs

This digital collection from the Duke University Libraries houses images from Alex Harris' 1971-1972 trip across North Carolina, in which he set out to document substandard housing and living conditions on behalf of the Institute of Policy Sciences and Public Affairs. In addition to reading about the initiative, readers may view 56 original photographs from the trip, including a haunting shot of an overturned car, a photograph of migrant workers playing horseshoes, and other photos of homes, run-down federal buildings, and landscapes from the state of North Carolina. The collection may be sorted by Location (Halifax County, Camden County, Durham County, and more), browsed in its entirety, or experienced through a close look at the Featured Items, which reveal the photographic print displayed against a grey background, adding to the feeling of a gallery-like experience.
