The International Center of Photography is hosting an exploration of vernacular image-making among Black Europeans and African Americans during the first half of the the twentieth century. Tina Campt’s new book “Image Matters: Archive, Photography and the African Diaspora in Europe“ examines how Black Germans and Black Britons used vernacular photography to create forms of identity and belonging that challenged racist stereotypes. “Through A Lens Darkly” co-producer, Dr. Deborah Willis, will be a featured panelist for this event. For more information, please visit ICP.org.
The event brings together scholars, photographers, archivists, and curators of visual culture in the African Diaspora for a discussion of Campt’s work and the insights it offer on how black communities articulate their place in their society through the photographic image.
