Creating Careers in Portrait Photography: Thursday, February 1 at 8:00 PM

Thursday, February 1, 8:00 PM
The National Arts Club: 15 Gramercy Park S New York, NY 10003
How do portrait photographers, who often begin their careers in commercial settings, move beyond creating mere likenesses to produce culturally defining art? Authors, antiquitarian book specialists, rare photography dealers and experts Stephan and Jacob Loewentheil will discuss this process by examining two portrait photographers from very different eras: Matthew Brady (1822-1896) and Marcel Sternberger (1899-1956).
