There are about two dozen photographs in The Providence Album, Vol. 1, a lively and historically fascinating exhibition running through mid-July at Brown’s John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage. Harry Callahan and Carmel Vitullo’s black and white photographs document Providence – downtown and Federal Hill, mostly – in the 1960s, a period when Americans were fleeing cities en masse via newly constructed interstate highways. Callahan’s storefronts and signs capture the architectural feel of the era, turning Providence into a lonely Edward Hopper painting; Vitullo is more interested in people, her composed portrait subjects looking directly at the camera.
