Fort Worth Fire Program: March 5

Glen Ellman Fort Worth FireGlen Ellman began photographing firefighters while growing up on Long Island, NY. He published his first fire image in Newsday at age 14, and later photographed a tragic, nationally reported fire in Syracuse, NY, while a photojournalism student at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications.

He has captured more than 2 million frames of firefighters and EMS responders at fires and behind the scenes at stations and training.

Glen has been making images in the Fort Worth-Dallas area for more than 30 years. He began his career as a newspaper photographer, including at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He now provides commercial photo services to businesses, community organizations and other clients, along with his work as the official photographer for the Fort Worth Fire Department.

Photographing Diverse Groups Program: 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 a 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 through May 10, 2020, includes images of Texas dairy farmers by Morris Engel,  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 joined the Carter museum in 2018, having spent the previous three years as the Beaumont and Nancy Newhall Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY. She is a doctoral candidate at the New York Institute of Fine Arts, and has contributed to art and photography commentary published by the Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Join us!
