William Earle Williams is Professor of Fine Arts and Curator of Photography at Haverford College in Haverford, Pennsylvania. His photography focuses on the unrenowned and oft-forgotten places of the Civil War: locations where African American soldiers trained, fought, and died. Williams’ work

is steeped in history and, due to thorough investigation, features spaces often unrecognizable for their historical importance without his research and documentation. His photographs record the impressions the war made on the earth in spaces upon which no monument was ever erected, but where African Americans fought and earned their freedom.

Williams’ work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the New York Public Library.

Williams began his art career in Philadelphia, exhibiting at the Samuel
S. Fleisher Art Memorial and Esther Klein Gallery, as well as holding a
fellowship with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and a permanent installation at the Philadelphia Convention Center. Before 2002, he had also shown at the Bordini Museum, Florence; the Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, VA; and the Smithsonian Museum, Washington, D.C. Since 2002, he has received a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation and exhibited in Durham, NC; Philadelphia; and New York, NY among other accomplishments.
