Free Program on the Impact of 20th Century Photography |
On Wednesday, May 15 at 7:30, the Greene County Camera Club will host a free showing of Part One of “American Photography: Images of the 20th Century” at the Athens Cultural Center. It is the story of the pictures we have taken and where they have taken us. The series traces the profound effect photographs have had on American Life-influencing what we buy, how we dress, how we get the news and in matters of life and death, medicine, science and war.
Whether it’s the evocative art photography of Edward Weston, the first image of a fragile Earth taken from space, glamorous photographs of the latest fashions, a Dorothea Lange look at a bread line during the Great Depression, or a powerful World War II image by Robert Capa, the program captures the images of a century of change and the role the camera has played in bother documenting and creating it. Dramatic and intimate stories trace photography’s role as a recorder of public events, family history, vehicle for artistic expression, and tool for influencing public opinion
