Teenie Harris Photography Archive

The Pittsburgh Galleries blog is a volunteer effort to promote Pittsburgh art events which feature artists from the area. The website effort is an up-to-date directory with Pittsburgh area art venues. Thanks go to David L. Edwards Art for his donation to this effort! Donation and sponsor info can be found here.

Teenie Harris' photographs are unsurpassed in the range of subjects they portray and for their ability to evoke the spirit of an era and to display the humanity of a people.

In 2001, Carnegie Museum of Art acquired the collection from the Harris family. The museum is in the midst of a four-year project to catalogue and digitize the images. Using the museum's online collection search page, you can now view more than 45,000 images in the collection, and more are being added to the database each week.

Like what's posted on this blog and the website ? This is a volunteer effort so donations of any size are welcome which can be made via paypal here . Also at that link anyone interested in purchasing banner space, which includes placement on this blog and the website, can sign up there. Thanks! Rick Byerly
