Through the Lens: The Photographic Legacy of Jennie Ross Cobb
Comprised of Cherokee Nation citizen Jennie Fields Ross Cobb's photographs show between 1896-1906, "Through the Lens" reveals a glimpse of life in Indian Territory in the decade before Oklahoma statehood. Among Cobb's photographs are those of the historic Hunter's Home - the only surviving antebellum plantation in Oklahoma - in the years her family lived there.
Other photos show her seminary friends in candid shots refreshingly relatable for their time. The exhibit also explores Ross's role as the first curator of Hunter's Home after it was purchased by the state for preservation.
