Photographing Family in the History of Photography
Wednesday, September 266:30—8:30 PMCommunity Room Sherborn Library at the Sherborn Community Center3 Sanger St. , Sherborn , MA, 01770
In this presentation, we will cover the ways in which photographers have made pictures of family and their domestic sphere through the history of the medium from Julia Margaret Cameron to Alfred Steiglitz and the photo-sessionist photographers to mid-twentieth century masters such as Harry Callahan and Emmet Gowin. We will give extra attention to the photographers who influenced Sally Mann and to several women photographers who have been overlooked in the history books. We will conclude with a look at contemporary photographers who have utilized color as a means of expressing the emotional connections in our most intimate relationships. This workshop is led by local college art professor and photographer, Suzanne Revy.
Sally Mann's photography exhibit "A Thousand Crossings" is currently on display at the Peabody Essex Museum until September 23. The Library offers discounted passes to PEM.
