A Fine Evening for Photography

The fifth-floor gallery was filled as Joel Smith of the Morgan Library & Museum spoke about Edward Curtis
Last night Swann hosted a wonderful talk by Joel Smith, the Photography curator at the Morgan Library & Museum. It was standing room only as he spoke about Edward S. Curtis's The North American Indian, including the scope of the project, the role of bibliophile J.P. Morgan, and the confluence of documentary and artistic expression.
Daile Kaplan, Director of Photographs & Photobooks welcomed guests

Joel Smith's illustrated talk was very well received

The preview for Swann's October 4 auction of Fine Photographs & Photobooks was on view, as was a selection of featured items in Aperture Foundation's Sixtieth Anniversary Photography Gala & Auction to be held on October 23. The Aperture Preview will be up at Swann through October 3.
