The Insistent, and Persistent, Claims of Social Documentary Photography

Presentation by Sally Stein

Tuesday, September 23, 2008, 7 PM
Woodbridge Campus Theater, Northern Virginia Community College

This talk reviews a few classic visual projects and continuing debates of documentary photography to argue for the central importance of this genre in the modern tradition and legacy of photography.


Sally Stein, Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Studies at University of California, irvine, has focused her research and writing for many decades on the history of photography, particularly the work of documentarians Dorothea Lange, Marion Post Wolcott, Jack Delano, Rondal Partridge and, most recently, John Gutmann.
