Larson will read excerpts from her bookÂ Hidden Mother which tells the story of the adoption of her daughter from Ethiopia as mapped through nineteenth-century hidden mother photographs. Durant will read excerpts from 27 Contexts: An Anecdotal History in Photography, a series of linked essays that weave memoir with photographic history and theory to examine how photographs are inextricably bound in our personal and collective histories. The readings will be introduced and moderated by SVA faculty memberÂ Lyle Rexer, author of The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography, andÂ will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing reception.
