Seminar: A L Coburn's photographic autobiography as an instrument of 'ennoblement'

On Wednesday, 17 December 2014 Cathrin Hauswald will present a paper ‘A. L. Coburn's photographic autobiography as an instrument of “ennoblement”’ The paper is part of a larger project tracing the development from pictorialism to abstraction in photography at the beginning of 20th century. It focuses on Coburn’s self-portraits and in his autobiography, to show how these strategies of self-expression function as means to inscribe himself in the history of photography. 

The seminar on Wednesday, 17 December 2014, 18:00-19:30, is hosted by the History and Theory of Photography Research Centre, Birkbeck, and is free and open to all, at 43 Gordon Sq, London WC1H 0PD, Room 112.

Cathrin Hauswald is from the Universität Konstanz.
