Photographing Diverse Groups: Jan. 2

Join us for the first program of the new year!

Kristen Gaylord Amon Carter Museum 2019Kristen Gaylord will discuss the ethics, challenges and possibilities of photographing a group of people by an artist/photographer who is not a member of that group. She will provide examples from the Amon Carter museum’s current exhibition “Looking In: Photography from the Outside.”

The exhibition, which is on view from Dec. 21, 2019 through May 10, 2020, includes images of Texas dairy farmers by Morris Engle,  the Navajo Nation by Laura Gilpin, images from a Life magazine project by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange, and photos from Richard Avedon’s “In the American West” project which generated international attention when it opened at the Carter in 1985. Exhibition images are part of the Carter’s permanent photography collection.

Gaylord, who joined the Carter museum in 2018, is a doctoral candidate at the New York Institute of Fine Arts, Brooklyn, NY. She has contributed to art and photography journals and texts published by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others.
