The New York Public Library is currently holding an exhibition of 80 maps taken from its own map collection. This exhibition is on view from September 9, 2005 to April 9, 2006. Yesterday's New York Times has an interesting review of the exhibition suggests that the show’s “sampling is dizzying.” The review also suggests that “maps are less metaphysical than they once were and more explicitly functional, serving a particular purpose and leaving higher concerns for other arts.” An indication of a trend for the future? Possibly, especially considering the increased use of satellite and air photo photography as well as land-based photography.
