Sponsored by The Grolier Club
The panel will offer a conversation about Vittorio Sella and Wilfred Thesiger, explorers and photographers “At the Edge.” A conversation between exhibition curator Dr. Roger Härtl and other experts about two explorers, authors and photographers “At The Edge.” Sella and Thesiger wandered the world at the crossroads of the age of exploration and the development of modern photographic techniques. This panel discussion will explore how art allows for the documentation of the alien with truth rather than conquest.
The panel discussion is offered in connection with the exhibition, “Photographs at the Edge: Vittorio Sella and Wilfred Thesiger,” on display in the Grolier Club’s second floor gallery through May 14, 2022. This will be a live online event, and all attendees will receive an email with the link the day of the event. If you’ve not received a link by 9:00 am Eastern time, please check your spam folder.
