Join us for a conversation with guest curator Michele Penhall and writer Eugenia Parry as they talk about their personal experiences, views, and understandings of the photographs on view in the exhibition and book Stories from the Camera.

Eugenia Parry has been discovering new ways to write about art and photography for over forty years. As a professor, she taught the histories of art and photography at Wellesley College (1968-1986) and at the University of New Mexico (1987-1993) where she held the Public Service of New Mexico Foundation Endowed Chair.

Michele Penhall served as the Curator of Prints and Photographs at the University of New Mexico Art Museum from 2004-2014 where she organized exhibitions on photography, prints, video projects and book collections. She received her Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico in 1997 working with Eugenia Parry and Tom Barrow.
