Through my job, I spend a fair amount of time in museums and historic sites, working on exhibition projects. Any photographs taken in these locations are usually done for reference and documentation. Travel and schedule often limit opportunities to “just take photographs”. The Mansion House, built by the Oneida Community in 1861, has a fascinating history and, with it’s chapel, library and gardens, just oozes atmosphere. It’s relatively close to home, and the director has kindly allowed me to take photographs on weekend afternoons, just for the fun of it.
These 19th century exhibition cabinets, just outside the Big Hall, are filled with objects collected by Community members, from around the world. Many of the artifacts are accompanied by hand written labels which appear as if they’ve been untouched for decades. It’s an interesting look at how a collection such as this was interpreted and presented.
