Capturing the dignity of individual humanities, Houston's images differ from portraits of protest and collective struggle. He reveals nobility in places where some assume it cannot exist and portrays a collective vision through the lives of individuals.
Most Daring Dream, an exhibition that features more than 20 images captured by the photographer, is currently on view in the Linear Gallery. These photographs will serve as a catalyst for a symposium with Robert Houston. A former UM Architecture Professor John Wiebenson worked with a group of students on the construction of Resurrection City. Students and faculty from across the university concerned with poverty and civil rights in America are encouraged to attend and join the discussion.
