Lectures

The Camera and the Street

10/20/2016 / 6:30pm

Stepping back to set the street photographs of Vivian Maier in a larger context, John Tagg examines the long and varied history of the camera and the street and the complicated issues of performance and pleasure, property and privacy, power and the public domain this history raises.

Born in the North-East of England and trained at the Royal College of Art in London, John Tagg writes on forms of photographic practice not previously considered part of the history of photography, including police and prison photography, social surveillance, urban records and other archival systems in which the photograph is made to serve as a document. From here, his interests have extended to the ways we construct histories of cultural technologies and visual regimes, and to the theoretical debates that have transformed the history of art and photography since the 1970s. Author of The Burden of RepresentationThe Disciplinary Frame and other books, Tagg lives and works in upstate New York, where he is Distinguished Professor of Art History at Binghamton University, State University of New York.
