Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Toby Jurovics: Timothy H. O’Sullivan—Photographing American Facts

Friday, July 8, 2016 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

Timothy H. O’Sullivan was arguably the most accomplished photographer working in the nineteenth century American West, yet the meaning and intent of his images has been questioned and contested by historians and critics. Toby Jurovics, Chief Curator and Holland Curator of American Western Art at Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, investigates O’Sullivan’s work for the geologic surveys led by Clarence King and George M. Wheeler, and his ongoing influence on landscape photography. More

Standing Still

Photographs by Danny Singer
Dec 13, 2015–May 22, 2016

This exhibition offers eleven views of small towns on the North American prairie. Singer photographed the kinds of places most travelers overlook in their rush to get from one city to the next. The result is a series of what Singer calls “paper movies” that evoke the feeling of driving slowly down Main Street, taking things in a little at a time. More

Anderman Photography Lecture Series: Mark Ruwedel

Friday, September 18, 2015 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

With grids of small gelatin silver prints hand-titled in graphite and arranged by type, Mark Ruwedel’s work straddles the line between documentation and conceptual art.

His photographs of the U.S. and Canadian West present landscapes marked by their human presence. These pictures reveal the histories of places that have been traversed, exploited, and built upon. Sometimes these marks are evident, other times they’re merely a trace, yet all show the West as a peopled landscape—even in its perceived desolation—and give evidence that human and natural histories are intertwined.

Friday, November 13, 2015 - 7:00pm8:30pm.

In her work, An-My Lê examines the culture of war. Drawing equally from the traditions of landscape and combat photography, she uses a large format camera not to depict the action of battle, but to give context to how we fight. More
