Presentation Date:

New-York Historical Society

For decades, Americans saw the world through the lens of the photographers at LIFE magazine, and our new exhibition, LIFE: Six Women Photographers, explores the work of the groundbreaking women who helped create that worldview. Join William J. Simmons, co-curator of the exhibition, and the influential curator and writer Marvin Heiferman as they reflect on visual storytelling and the many ways women have played a central role in the history of photography, both as art and journalism.
