Lecture Alvin Langdon
Coburn, the Great War, and the "World's First Abstract
Photographs" Thursday, May 5, 5 p.m. (ET) Friend Center 101 or Stream it online
In 1917 the American photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn staged a show of eighteen photographs and thirteen watercolors at the London Camera Club. By looking at the context of what his friend Ezra Pound dubbed "Vortographs," this lecture will probe why Coburn sought to free his medium from reality (as he wrote) at this critical historical moment. Presented by Anne McCauley, the David Hunter McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art at Princeton University. Cosponsored by the Department of Art and Archaeology. Join us in person at the Friend Center or stream it live.
