Professor of Art History lectured on the history of photography

Professor of Art History Jerome Feldman, Ph.D., provided a lecture entitled "A Short History of Photographic Issues and Genres" at the East West Center Gallery (Burns Hall) on July 17, 2016. Feldman covered the history of photography from its beginnings — capturing very crude imagery — to progressively more advanced technologies. He discussed the long interaction that photography has had with other genres of art and photography’s role in capturing history. Feldman’s talk was held in conjunction with the exhibition, "China Through the Lens of John Thomson 1869-1872," showing at Burns Hall Gallery until Sept. 11.
