Presented by Anne Wilkes Tucker, the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography.

Great photographs have been made for magazines by legendary photographers from the 1920s to the present. The Museum's rich holdings of images—including photographs for feature stories; portraits of celebrities; and sports coverage—convey history, popular culture, and glamour. Anne Wilkes Tucker explores how the Internet has changed the pictures made now, and how they are different from those made for printed magazines. Questions about the content of this lecture?

This lecture is presented in conjunction with Made for Magazines: Iconic 20th-Century Photographs.
