“The first thing that comes to my mind with that type of show is the Family of Man exhibition,” say DiCampo, referring to Edward Steichen’s celebrated 1955 Museum of Modern Art show, which went on the become the most-travelled exhibition in the history of photography. “Obviously it’s not on that scale.
