Ways of Seeing War: Lee Miller and Margaret Bourke-White
Time: 6:00 PM

Location: Palamountain Hall - Davis Auditorium

World War II marked a decisive transition point in the development of modern photojournalism, and in the ways that photography functioned in the public sphere. In this talk, the work of two women with distinctly different approaches to their craft?Lee Miller and Margaret Bourke-White?will illustrate some of the key issues arising from the conflict, and the forces at work in shaping how photography was used to represent it.

Miller and Bourke-White make for an especially intriguing series of comparisons, as during the war they covered a number of the same places and events. Following the Allied advance through Europe after D-Day, they both covered major stories such as major bomb damage in Cologne, the suicided family of the Burgomeister of Leipzig, and Buchenwald concentration camp, among others. The difference in their photographs of the selfsame subjects provides an object lesson in the range of photojournalistic responses possible at the time.
