Photography isn't the first thing you associate with Dartmouth College. But two of America's finest living photographers are alumni (Joel Sternfeld and James Nachtwey), and shortly before he died Walker Evans was an artist in residence there. So it makes perfect sense that Dartmouth's Hood Museum of Art, Hanover, N.H., should have an impressive photography collection.
The Hood has drawn on that collection for "Focus on Photography: Works From 1950 to Today." It runs through March 8. The show's breadth is considerable. Photographers with work in "Focus on Photography" range from Lotte Jacobi, who was born in the 1890s, to Nikki Lee, who had her first one-person show in the 1990s. Sternfeld ("McLean, Virginia Pumpkins", above) and Nachtwey are in it, too, of course. 603-646-2808.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
