Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography

This past weekend we attended First Friday in the Downtown Canton Arts District.  It was a festive event, and discovering the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography was the highlight. It is certainly worth another visit on its own.  The spacious gallery boasts 200 prints representing the entire history of photography as a medium.  The number of recognizable images is impressive--  portraits of famous individuals and photographs that document moments in history, as well as images by significant photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz, Richard Avedon and Paul Strand.  It is almost overwhelming.
