Salzmann in Peru: The Making of Misk’i Kachi Runakuna
April 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
CROSS-CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES: A DISCUSSION ON DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE WORK OF LAURENCE SALZMANN
In response to questions foregrounded in Laurence Salzmann’s exhibition Misk’i Kachi Runakuna, Taller Puertorriqueño is hosting two consecutive virtual talks about documentary photography and cross-cultural perspectives. The discussions will address Salzmann’s work as well as examine issues of power embodied by the photographer’s eye, the role of the subject in shaping the narrative, and the complicity of the viewer.
In the talk, The Making of Misk’i Kachi Runakuna: The Art of Laurence Salzmann, Laurence Salzmann discusses the work that is featured in his show at Taller Puertorriqueño, Misk’i Kachi Runakuna. With commentary and insights by Stephen Perloff, we will cover Salzmann’s documentary photography and film, and his transition to non-representational photography. Stephen Perloff is the founder and editor of The Photo Review. Moderated by Rafael Damast, Exhibitions Program Manager for Taller Puertorriqueño.
