Photo on the Front: Art vs Documentary

July 17, 2019, 7pm
Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos
450 Grand Concourse, The Bronx

Join us for a conversation on what is private and what is public when working with subjects in photography. The artist discussion will focus on the vulnerability of the sitter or subject for public consumption and how their image enters into the public consciousness.

Panelist: Roger Richardson, Damarys Alvarez, and Jerry Lim
Moderator, Alexander Campos


This public program is presented in conjunction with Subject ≠ Object: 2019 En Foco Fellowship Group Exhibition. The exhibit features work by the ten 2019 En Foco Photography Fellows and examines contemporary societal issues of race, identity, sexuality, urbanization, ecology, feminism, and politics, while continuing the dialogue of the ongoing need to expose and respond to fear of the unknown.
