Something for the diary beginning Thursday 4th February, a 3 part lecture series exploring the history of the African Diaspora in Photography. It is hosted at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) and lead by California College of the Arts Professor Makeda Best.
The first lecture will be investigating portraiture. Right up my street. Discussions will introduce audiences to key African American photographers, photographers of the African diaspora, and their work. Discussion will be encouraged along with bibliography and a chance to explore more post lecture. This is a great opportunity to gain both an understanding of the history of African American photography and photography of the African diaspora, and a general introduction to the history of photography. Very exciting!
