Levi Stone photographs
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- The Huntington Museum of Art will feature 80 photographs by Levi Holley Stone in a new exhibit titled "The Herald-Dispatch Presents: Looking Back: Huntington Through the Lens of Levi Holley Stone."
The exhibit will be on view May 25 through Aug. 18. Emmy Award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker John Witek will lead a walk through the exhibit at 7:15 p.m. June 25. Admission is free. A reception follows.
Witek stumbled upon Stone's work when he purchased more than 1,000 negatives by Stone at a local flea market. He didn't know he had discovered a cache of unique images taken by a self-taught photographer with great vision.
"Before photography was considered an art, Stone was creating masterworks with a $20 vest pocket Kodak," Witek said. "If you ever wondered what Huntington was really like in the good old days, you'll see for yourself in these stunning pictures."
Many of Stone's images portray people and places encountered in Huntington from as early as 1912 and into the 1940s. These include shots of crowds during parades, luncheonettes, pool halls, vaudeville entertainers, movie theaters and more.
