American Landscape Photography: Art as Storytelling

Holly Markovitz Goldstein, Ph.D., Art History Professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design presents a lecture on the various traditions throughout American Landscape photography.

"American Landscape Photography: Art as Storytelling" offers an engaging exploration of canonical and lesser-known photographs depicting the American landscape from the invention of photography through the present. With a focus on how photographs convey multiple meanings, Dr. Goldstein will trace the appearance, context, and political and ecological messages embedded in landscape photography. Artists discussed will include Carleton Watkins, Ansel Adams, and Esther Pullman, among others.
