A midcentury voting machine. A pair of baby dolls from a famed science experiment. A lock of hair from the most photographed American of his day: Frederick Douglass. All were selected and photographed in natural light by Wendel A. White, the 2021 recipient of the Peabody Museum’s Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography. White photographed African-American materials housed in private and public collections throughout the thirteen original United States colonies and Washington, D.C. His subjects are rare, singular objects and everyday material such as diaries, documents, photographs, and souvenirs—what he calls “the forensic evidence of Black life and events in the United States.”
