Lumiere offers one of the world's most diverse, photographic programs. The gallery features the work of more than 75 master photographers, including vintage and contemporary prints. Its image collection is the largest in the southeastern US. Subjects vary from landscape and portraiture, to abstractions and architecture, in black and white as well as color. Regular gallery exhibitions are complimented by extensive educational programming. This includes lectures, panel discussions and film screenings on artists, their work and periods in the evolution of photography. The lecture and panel discussion series is typically held in partnership with major museums.
