Speaker: Ron Tarver, Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, Swarthmore College

Ron Tarver is a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer with a broad background covering photojournalism and art photography. In this session, Tarver explains how he has reimagined the African American experience in the United States under Jim Crow through the lens of his father Richard, a photographer who captured the community of Fort Gibson, Oklahoma during the 1940s and 1950s. Tarver will share his own experience as a photographer and how he has approached his current project that borrows from his father’s productive legacy.
