Photography and the Post-Industrial City


Museum Lecture Hall

In the spirit of Thomas Annan who recorded the people, the social landscape, and the built environment in Glasgow during the rise of industry in 19th-century Scotland, this panel convenes photographers Ken Ashton, Janet Delaney, and Camilo Jose Vergara, who use their cameras to document American cities experiencing industrial decline in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Moderated by Brian Cross, professor of visual arts at UC San Diego.
