Ann Harlow, Berkeley Historical Society president, will give an illustrated talk about eight notable Berkeley photographers born before 1900: Oscar V. Lange, Anne Brigman, Oscar Maurer, Laura Adams Armer, Adelaide Hanscom, Emily Pitchford, Cedric Wright, and Dorothea Lange.
Ann Harlow is an independent art historian specializing in the art and culture of California from 1850 to 1950. She is a past director of the art museum at Saint Mary’s College, and has had many opportunities to become familiar with California photographic history, beginning with her apprenticeship with curator Therese Heyman at the Oakland Museum forty years ago.
The event is free, but seating is limited, so please make a reservation through Eventbrite (see "Tickets" above) or by calling (510) 848-0181. The talk will be preceded at 2 p.m. by a brief annual election meeting and followed by the opening of an exhibit about Berkeley photographer Allen Stross (1923–2017).
