If a picture tells a thousand words, the Library of Congress is bringing 440,000 of them to Los Angeles with a free-wheeling photo exhibition that seeks to define America's zeitgeist in a way people have never seen. Staged by the Annenberg Space For Photography, "Not An Ostrich: And Other Images From America's Library" takes visitors on a journey across the country beginning with the birth of photography and continuing to the present day.See baseball immortal Babe Ruth lying in his coffin in 1948 while, not far away, in a photo taken seven years later, a young Hank Aaron is seen speaking with a reporter decades before he would break Ruth's home-run record.Tucker worked for nearly two years with Library of Congress photo curator Beverly Brannan and others, culling through some 1 million of the library's 14 million photos.There's also that reliable photo standby, the funny cat picture.One of the first photos visitors see is a daguerreotype Robert Cornelius snapped of himself outside his family's Philadelphia lamp shop in 1839 .
