Circles Lunchtime Lecture Series
Norton Family Curator Rebecca Senf will speak about one of the Center for Creative Photography’s archive artists, Louise Dahl-Wolfe.
American fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe (1895-1989) worked for Harper’s Bazaar between 1936 and 1958, during which time she contributed an unequalled 86 cover images and hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs.
Dahl-Wolfe was known for making photographs on location in exotic settings, but her feminist perspective – a crucial component of her images – is often ignored. A discussion of Dahl-Wolfe’s photographic vision will be accompanied by images of some of her most dramatic and impressive pictures.
Enjoy a hosted lunch as we get up close and personal with the Center for Creative Photography’s collection.
Cost: $15 per person. Seating is limited.
