Colloquium: “Survey Photography of the American West”

This colloquium is presented in conjunction with the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny exhibition Images of the West: Survey Photography in French Collections, 1860–1880 and focuses on the many interpretations of nineteenth-century survey photography of the American western territories. Speakers discuss the international dissemination of these images and the implications of such circulation, in particular their reception by French scientific and cultural circles during the nineteenth century. This event is organized by the Université Paris 7–Denis-Diderot and the Terra Foundation for American Art.
