History of Art Symposium

Contemporary Strategies in Documentary Photography

Part II: Allan Sekula and Sally Stein
Saturday, February 6, 1–5:30 pm
Helmut Stern Auditorium

Shipwreck and Workers by Allan Sekula

This two-part symposium (Part I Jan. 30) explores new practices in documentary photography through the work of some of its most important contemporary practitioners. Each talk will be followed by a panel discussion.

Since the 1970s, Allan Sekula has been on the forefront of documentary practice, expanding our understanding of the photographic “objectivity” in his dual role as both photographer and theoretician.

Sally Stein is an art historian whose field is the history of photography with particular interest in American photography of the New Deal era. Feminist issues and methodology consistently inform her efforts toward an interdiciplinary critical perspective.
