Through the Photographer's Eyes: The Diana Mara Henry Collection

Screenshot
Photographer and photojournalist Diana Mara Henry documented many of the outstanding events of the late twentieth century in the US, from Vietnam War protests and the women's rights movement to the 1972 Democratic National Convention, as well as portraits of many prominent people, including politicians, musicians, activists, and artists. In the 1980s, Henry purchased 100 acres of land near Esopus Creek, a tributary of the Hudson River in Ulster County, New York, and began investigating food issues and the Permaculture Movement. Special Collections at the University of Massachusetts Amherst presents this web exhibition showcasing photographs and documents from their Diana Mara Henry Collection, such as Henry's press passes, articles, and reading lists for courses she took. Visitors to this site will also find information (all accompanied by photographs) about Henry's early and professional life, photographic assignments during political movements in New York City, and Henry's involvement in social movements throughout the 1970s and 80s.
