Eye of History: Discussion on Documentary Photography

Several of the photographers whose works are currently displayed in the Zilkha Gallery will be on campus tomorrow afternoon. Come for their panel discussion, Eye of History: The Camera as Witness, followed by a book signing and public reception:

Internationally renowned documentary photographers Wendy Ewald, Eric Gottesman and Susan Meiselas join acclaimed writer and critic David Levi Strauss in a panel discussion about photography’s role in the world today. Wesleyan President and historian Michael Roth will introduce the panel. A Q&A session will follow. Participating as audience members will be a significant number of international scholars of photography and history including former photo editor of the NY Times, Vicki Goldberg.

Following the Panel there will be a public reception and book signing at Zilkha Gallery at 6:30 pm. If you haven’t seen it already the reception will be a wonderful opportunity to view the current exhibition curated by Nina Felshin, “Framing and Being Framed: The Uses of Documentary Photography,” which features works by the Panel presenters and other artists.

All are welcome. Hope you can join us for this exciting event.
