Emilie Boone, an assistant professor of art history in the African American Studies Department at CUNY New York City College of Technology, will speak about African American photographer James Van Der Zee at the Williams College Museum of Art. The talk, titled “James Van Der Zee’s Forgotten Photographic Practice: New Forms of Visual Engagement,” is presented in conjunction with WCMA’s current exhibit “James Van Der Zee: Collecting History,” which highlights WCMA’s recently acquired portfolio of 18 photographs by Van Der Zee (1886-1983) during the first half of the 20th century. Born and raised in Lenox, Mass., Van Der Zee established a thriving photography studio in Harlem by 1916 and served as the foremost chronicler of black life in New York City during the early 20th century.
