In the last two years, the Haverford College Photo Collection has been gifted and purchased hundreds of new pieces, including those by Pierre Petit, Catherine Jansen, Ben Magid Rabinovitch, and Steve McCurry.

A Survey of Recent Acquisitions of Photographs from 2017-2019 presents 40 of these recent collection acquisitions together to illustrate the story of the photographic artform from landscapes and portraits to travel, photojournalism, and conceptual works.
