5:30 Keynote Lecture (Collins Cinema):
“The Poetry of the Everyday: Clarence H. White and the Creation of American Art Photography, 1895-1925”
Anne McCauley, David Hunter McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art, Princeton University, and curator of the exhibition, Clarence H. White and His World, will trace how a young man from Newark, Ohio, taught himself photography and within five years was exhibiting in London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, and elsewhere. White’s melding of the ideals of Arts and Crafts movement and American socialism with the new demands of advertising and magazine illustration resulted in innovative compositions that defined what “modernism” in photography would be in the twentieth century.
