The photographs included in Permanent Residents: Artists from Cheekwood’s Collection not only allow us an opportunity to examine issues of style and content, but raise questions of the history and philosophy of photography in general. To understand what makes photography distinct, it must be considered in the context of other artistic media. Dr. Leonard Folgarait, Professor of History of Art at Vanderbilt University, will use images from the exhibition to discuss 20th century photography and explore its particular and peculiar power to fascinate us. Dr. Folgarait will also concentrate on the question of how personalities can be captured in flat, black and white images.
