Lecture on “Photographing the News”

In June 2017 at e-flux, I gave a lecture on the photographs of: Helen Levitt, Facundo de Zuviría, Nacho Lopez, Charles “Teenie” Harris, León Ruiz, Jessie Tarbox Beals, Héctor García, Berenice Abbott, and Elizabeth McCausland. Other meditations of the lecture included: stills from Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames and the space between Democracy Now! and The New York Times, or, how Amy Goodman’s voice cracks and a camera phone scans the height and width of a print headline.
