BFA Photography and Video and Saint Lucy Books, a website devoted to writing about photography and contemporary art, present a reading and book signing with Laura Larson and Mark Alice Durant.
Larson will read excerpts from her book Hidden Mother which tells the story of the adoption of her daughter from Ethiopia as mapped through nineteenth-century hidden mother photographs. Durant will read excerpts from 27 Contexts: An Anecdotal History in Photography, a series of linked essays that weave memoir with photographic history and theory to examine how photographs are inextricably bound in our personal and collective histories. The readings will be introduced and moderated by SVA faculty member Lyle Rexer, author of The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography, and will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing reception.
