Stephen Greenberg Speaks on Medical Photography

June 15th, 2016

See history come alive! Join librarian, historian and photographer Stephen Greenberg as he explores the curious and fascinating world of medical photography.  Photography has long been critical to the practice of medicine, but many times the resulting images and collections are far removed from their original context and therefore mysterious to the viewer.  Why were these pictures taken? Who saw them? How did they reflect the techniques and aesthetics of the rest of contemporary photography, and in particular what do these photos say about photography as the recorder of unmanipulated “truth?”
