Recognized / Recognizability: LGBTQ Photo Archives and History

Event Details

An online panel discussion on LGBTQ+ photography, history, and archives.

About this Event
What does it mean for LGBTQ life to be documented and recognized?

Join us for an online panel discussion on LGBTQ+ photography, history, and archives. This panel brings together photographers, artists, collectors, and television producers to explore LGBTQ+ history through the lens of photography and to consider the historical absence and presence of images of LGBTQ+ life.

The panel will feature Neal Baer, Zackary Drucker, Texas Isaiah, Kang Seung Lee, Hugh Nini, and Neal Treadwell. The discussion will be moderated by Kaucyila Brooke.

The panel will consider the following inquiries:

What does it mean for LGBTQ life to be documented and recognized? What happens when it’s not? What are the stories behind archival traces? To what extent can we consider archival photos as evidence of LGBTQ+ lives from generations long before the existence of 21st-century identity categories?

This event is inspired by the recent publication of Loving: A Photographic History of Men in Love, 1850s-1950s. Authors of Loving Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell will join the discussion. Copies of Loving are available via Book Soup’s website.

The event is free with a suggested donation of $10.

This event is organized by ONE Archives Foundation and co-presented with Book Soup. RSVP information will help us organize the event logistics. Event access information will be shared after registration.
