HALTalk with Andrew Szegedy-Maszak

Thursday, February 18, 2021, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Andrew Szegedy-Maszak, Professor of Classical Studies at Wesleyan University, CT is going to talk about his long entanglement with photography, from his early experiences as a collector (and his friendship with Kertész) to later work as a historian and scholar, with special attention to a remarkable American named William James Stillman.   Interesting fact: James Stillman fell under the spell of Kossuth and had a brief, inglorious adventure as a would-be spy for Kossuth in Vienna!
