The heritage of Lisette Model and Street Photography
symposium
le 13 mars 2010 14h30 - 17h30
In order to elucidate Lisette Model’s approach to photography, the contributors will place her work in its historical, geographical and artistic context, with particular emphasis on McCarthyism and Model’s response to the city of New York. This will provide a context for her perception of the medium and practice of Street Photography. Contemporary photographers will then present their own work in relation to today’s issues of documentary photography.

Directed by Samuel Kirszenbaum, photographer and historian of photography, with Lili Corbus, historian of art, Max Kozloff, art critic, Ann Thomas, curator at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Christophe Agou, photographer, and Gilles Coulon, photographer
