New at the Princeton University Art Museum

Life Magazine and the Power of Photography

The opening lecture for Life Magazine and the Power of Photography was standing room only. Now you can watch it from home.

In this video, exhibition curators Katherine Bussard, the Art Museum’s Peter C. Bunnell Curator of Photography; Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Senior Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Alissa Schapiro, PhD candidate in art history at Northwestern University, introduce key themes and works of art in this groundbreaking exhibition.
