What's Photography Doing at the Morgan?

Launched in 2012, Photography is the newest curatorial department at the Morgan. A defining visual language of the modern age, photography both complements and reframes the deeper histories told by the Morgan’s visual and literary collections. Join Joel Smith, Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography, and Leila Anne Harris, Edith Gowin Curatorial Fellow, Department of Photography as they explore the ways in which a medium of art, reportage, memory, and communication relates to the historical and aesthetic aims of the Morgan.
