Free / RSVP

Join artists Susan Meiselas and Carolyn Drake for a conversation with Curator of Photography Corey Keller about the complex relationship between a photographer and her subject.

Both artists have radically challenged the practice of documentary photography by exploring a variety of collaborative approaches in their projects, incorporating multiple modes of storytelling, and frequently engaging with subjects over long periods of time.

Susan Meiselas and Carolyn Drake
Part of Artist Talks, and The Phyllis Wattis Distinguished Lecture Series

Thursday, September 6, 2018 | 7 p.m.
Floor 1, Phyllis Wattis Theater

Some of the questions their work raises: What does it mean for a photographer to act as a witness? What is her responsibility to her subject? What might a new model for documentary photography look like?

The panel will also address the role the prestigious photographers’ collective Magnum Photos has played in both their careers, and the impacts of the rapidly shifting print and digital environment for working photographers.
