Abstract:

The materials comprise audio recordings and ephemera from "Zoom Out : The Making and Unmaking of the 'Orient' through Photography." The symposium examines how the Middle East and North Africa were represented through photography by Europeans and non-Europeans during the second half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Scholarly presentations and moderated discussions explore the relationship between Orientalist photography and other artistic media; the impact of traveling photographers on tourism and commercial photography; the connection between resident photographers and the rise of official photography (local and nationalistic); and the ways in which both local and foreign artists, as well as patrons and collectors, contributed to the making--and unmaking--of the "Orient."
