Walkers in the City: Jewish Women Photographers Picture New York

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Starting in the late 1930s young Jewish women picked up cameras and began to walk the streets of New York, providing us with vivid images of the city from their own gendered perspective. This illustrated lecture takes us back to mid-20th century when a camera gave women a license to stare. What they saw and pictured presents a very different version of New York City than the popular versions in the press and on the silver screen. Please bring your smartphone or a camera.
