To See and Be Seen: Queer and Trans Visibility in Photojournalism
In conjunction with the exhibition Mostly New: Selections from the NYU Art Collection
Following last semester’s conversation On Political Photography: Documenting Racial Inequality in the US, this event probes the power of photography in the contemporary moment by exploring queer and trans visibility in photojournalism, a field that has historically struggled to make space for non-traditional genders and identities.
Join NYU Professor Lauren Walsh and photographers Allison Lippy and Annie Tritt for a discussion that will consider what belonging means for trans and queer photographers within this industry, how queer subjects are represented in documentary and photojournalistic spaces, as well as what changes can be made for future generations.
Organized by the Grey Art Gallery at NYU; co-sponsored by the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, the NYU LGBTQ+ Center, and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at NYU.
