In 1987, an exhibition was held at the Olin Art Gallery one year after the passing away of Kenyon professor Denis Baly.
This exhibition, which focused on Baly’s work on Jordan, was called Jordanian Landscapes, History and Traditional Life. Baly wrote that the purpose of his work was “to illustrate the exceedingly rich landscape, the exceedingly rich history, and the traditional life which is in the process of disappearing.”
Now, more than two decades later, the Department of Art History presents Remembering Baly, an attempt to present once again, through his photographs from across the globe, the spirit of that indefatigable traveler and scholar who explored the world to bring us its treasures.
