Luc Sante at Aperture Gallery
Aperture and the Parsons Department of Photography at The New School present an artist’s talk with writer and critic Luc Sante. Sante will present a reading and images from his upcoming book Folk Photography: The American Real-Photo Postcard, 1905–1930, which was recently excerpted in Aperture magazine, Issue 195. Sante wants to convey something about the transmission of ideas, about the inventiveness and self-reliance required by artists working in relative isolation, about the constraints and liberties of artists who were considered artisans or even service professionals, about the uncertainty as to whether their decisions were artistic choices rather than accidental or expedient, about the incursion of modern technology into lives far from any main stream.
