Faculty Lecture: Alexander Nemerov, Soulmaker: The Times of Lewis Hine
Wednesday, October 5, 6:00 pm, Auditorium
One hundred years ago the American photographer Lewis Hine took some of the most memorable pictures of child workers ever made. Traveling around the United States while working for the National Child Labor Committee, he photographed children in textile mills, coal mines, and factories from Vermont to Georgia. In this lecture, given in tandem with the Cantor's exhibition Soulmaker: The Times of Lewis Hine, Alexander Nemerov, presents an alternative reading of these images and examines the powerful, emotional and mystical appeal these photographs continue to have today. Professor Nemerov is the Chair of the Department of Art & Art History and the Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities.Tickets are free, but advanced registration wil be required. Registration for this program will open on August 24. Registrations for the June 2 date will be transferred and honored.
