The Bigger Picture: Visual Archives and the Smithsonian
A DC Event Celebrates the Publication of PHOTOGRAPHY CHANGES EVERYTHING
On September 12, 2012, please join us at 7PM at the Smithsonian American Art Museum for a lively discussion and book signing event to celebrate the recent publication of Photography Changes Everything (Aperture/Smithsonian, 2012). The book, as we wrote in an earlier post, features stories by an eclectic range of project contributors, many of them from the Smithsonian, who explore how profoundly, and sometimes unexpectedly, photographic images can change what we see and want, where we go, what we do, who we are, and what we remember.
This upcoming evening features Marvin Heiferman, Photography Changes Everything’s Curator and Editor; David Griffin, Visuals Editor at the Washington Post; Bruce Hoffman, Director of Security Studies at Georgetown University; and Philip Kennicott, Art and Architecture Critic at the Washington Post, and will be moderated by Merry Foresta, founding Director of the Smithsonian Photography Initiative (2000-2010). A book signing follows. Hope to see you there!
