SAAM Launches Photography Podcast
April 15, 2008

We just launched a new podcast in our museum series about our photography collection and exhibitions here at SAAM. The American landscape has always been a rich subject for photography. Our photography curator, Toby Jurovics, talks about the work of two of his favorite landscape photographers in  SAAM's collections, Lee Friedlander and William Christenberry. In addition Jurovics discusses the "deadpan" dog photographs of William Wegman while conservator Kate Maynor talks about how the museum protects photographs while on exhibition. And finally we take a look at a recent installation here called We the People.

Download the mp3 or grab the podcast at iTunes (with images to go with).

How interesting! I look forward to listening to this.

Another great photography podcast I've come across is Jeff Curto's "Camera Position" and the cast of his "History of Photography" course at College of DuPage.

Enjoyed the new podcast.

Congrats, Toby Jurovics!

Totally agree "American landscape" had always inspired photographers.
