What are conceptions of photography that have existed outside the dominant paradigms of the West? A range of historians, curators and a photographer will address the query in an afternoon discussion. The participants have all pioneered new inquiries into photography’s identity in major cultural centers such as India, Turkey, South Africa, and the Middle-East, and within constituencies of the West who forged uses and understandings of photography that have only recently begun to receive critical attention, such as immigrant family photos in Canada. The format will consist of a short 10 minute presentation by each participant to introduce the primary problems and questions posed by a given body of photographs, and then a roundtable discussion among us all.

The event is free and open to the public, and part of the CCA’s seminar “What is Photography?” Please RSVP at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
