Harvard Then and Now

In “Walden,” Henry David Thoreau asks, “Why do precisely these objects which we behold make a world?” This project by photographer Özdemir Vayısoğlu seeks to contrast the worlds created by two distinct generations of Harvard students mainly through objects they owned. Through pairs of photos, it illustrates how Harvard’s campus has transformed since the late 19th and early 20th century, reflecting the epistemological value of everyday objects we behold for understanding our ever-changing world with a historical perspective, and thereby, providing a visual archaeology of how material culture has changed Harvard over the last century.
