How the Other Half Looks: Sara Blair on the Afterlives of Images

Due to concerns surrounding the spread of the Coronovirus/COVID-19, this event will be held online. The program is free and will take place via Zoom. RSVP to receive a link to join the program.

New York City’s Lower East Side, long viewed as the space of what Jacob Riis notoriously called the “other half,” was also a crucible for experimentation in photography, film, literature, and visual technologies. Scholar Sara Blair’s book How the Other Half Looks: The Lower East Side and the Afterlives of Images, takes an unprecedented look at the practices of observation that emerged from this critical site of encounter, showing how they have informed literary and everyday narratives of America, its citizens, and its possible futures.

This program is held in conjunction with The Lower East Side: Images from the ICP Collection. Visit our website for more information.
