Lectures on American Photography


Frances Benjamin Johnston: Self-portrait, 1896

Feedback on The Trailblazers lecture at the d.a.i.

"In dem Vortrag habe ich so viel über die Fotos und Biografien von Gertrude Käsebier, Berenice Abbott und anderen amerikanischen Fotografinnen erfahren. Danke Lee!  Und du hast ein tolle Art zu erzählen. Bei mir ist so viel hängen geblieben, ich erinnere mich an viele Details  - ein Zeichen dafür, wie emotional packend deine Geschichten waren." — A.M.

Dorothea Lange: Migrant Mother

Is your class or group interested in exploring the people and stories that influenced the development of American photography? I offer talks about the history of American photographers from 1890-2014, uncovering their stories and tracing their impact on the development of photography in general. One of my specialties is introducing modern audiences to the important contributions by accomplished American female photographers from the early 20th century, women whose work is too often over-looked and left out of the history books altogether.  In my 2015 Coming into Focus: Women in Photography project, my research will expand to explore the work of 20th century female photographers worldwide.

Contact me for a complete range of lecture topics and schedule availability. Topics can be tailored to your group's particular needs and interests. All of the topics can be organized into one or more 60-90 minute lectures and offered as either a series of lectures,  or as a single, stand-alone presentation.
