Women To The Front: Photography Mentorship In Early Albuquerque

Join Albuquerque Museum’s Digital Archivist, Jill Hartke, as she introduces you to five women photographers from Albuquerque’s early years. Beginning in the 1880s, a chain of mentorship grew in Albuquerque among women who owned or co-owned photography studios. These women were savvy business owners whose studios outlasted many studios run by their male counterparts.

Their stories are part of the current photo archives show, We Lead, Others Follow, and this lecture will expand on the show and detail the connections between the women and their legacy on Albuquerque’s photography history.

This program takes place on Zoom. Registration is required.
