In Visible Presence: Photography’s Afterlives

Book presentation and workshop


This 1.5 day workshop will bring together scholars of photography whose work was foundational for the book In Visible Presence: Soviet Afterlives in Family Photos (Oksana Sarkisova and Olga Shevchenko, MIT Press, 2023). The book discussion with the authors on May 16 will be moderated by Dr. Lorena Rizzo and followed by a full-day workshop on May 17, which is dedicated to the concept of photographic afterlives. Scholars of this visual medium will discuss the traces of experience that live in and through photography, as well as the afterlives of photographs themselves, exploring the emotional and political currents they set into motion.
