DR. DAVID LOW, Photographic Historian and Lecturer
DR. ARTO VAUN, Executive Director, Project SAVE
Photography in Harput (or Kharpert) always had a special role as a means of communicating with a distant "elsewhere." Above all, a link was forged with the northeastern US, a notable place of origin for American missionaries and destination point for Armenian migrants. Low's talk will explore long distance photographic dialogues and consider how pictures worked to solidify relationships and sustain communities during a period of great change.
Dr. David Low is a photographic historian who focuses on the Ottoman Armenian world.
