Photography and Community

Photography and Community

Community-based photography provides a lens through which to record the intergenerational visual history of people and places as seen from the artist’s insider perspective. CHF convenes a panel discussion on how artistic concerns—from identity, inclusion and representation, to ethics and consent—relate to the traditions of documentary photography. Join photographers and filmmakers Louis Massiah, Carlos Javier Ortiz, Wendy Ewald, and Deborah Willis for a conversation about photography for and by community members.

This program is generously underwritten in part by the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation.

This program is presented in partnership with the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, in conjunction with the multi-partner, multi-venue exhibition Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40.
