Historically Speaking: A Lifetime in Photographs with Adger Cowans (2/27) + Video

 

(March 2 Update) In case you missed the event, here's the video archive of Adger Cowans' speaking at National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC) on 2/27.


Renowned photographer Adger Cowans' forty year career captures the vastness of American life in black and white, from wholesome scenes of everyday life, to momentary snapshots of city life, to one of the most famous portraits of Malcolm X. From working as Gordon Parks' assistant at Life magazine to collaborating with fashion photographer Henri Clark, Mr. Cowans' lifelong career is truly remarkable. Join us for a conversation with Adger Cowans, and NMAAHC Curators Aaron Bryant (Photography) and Tuliza Fleming (Visual Arts) accompanied by visuals from Mr. Cowans' extensive photography archives. A book signing of "Personal Vision: Photographs: Adger Cowans" follows the presentation.
