Jeffrey Martz - History of Photography - Documents of Photography, Pt. 2

Photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz returns for his fourth installment of the history of photography – exploring the spread of documentary photography in the 19th century

The romantic imperative and a public eager for the truth of the camera image drive documentary photographers to all parts of the globe.

From the mysterious orient to the bleak wilderness of the American West, photography in the 19th-century simultaneously reinforces and shapes our concept of otherness. Back home, social concerns compel pioneering eyewitness photographers into the streets to record the truth of their times.

Join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz as we take a journey alongside pioneers Francis Frith, John Thomson, Jacob Riis, and many others. Our forum will feature the best-possible reproductions and dialogue.
