Capturing the Action in Maritime Photography

June 1, 2019

Presented by Sarah Scruggs, Curator of Photography/Photo Archivist

Lecture begins at 10:30 AM & 2:30 PM

Maritime Connections lectures are free with Museum admission, but seating is limited.

This is a lecture series presented by The Mariners’ Museum and Park staff. Go behind the scenes of the Museum and explore our collection while learning about the work the staff does.

Expanding on The Mariners’ Museum’s current exhibition Seizing the Moment: The Evolution of Action Photography, curator of photography Sarah Scruggs will provide a brief history in the technical advancements that led image-makers to be able to stop action. View exciting action images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection, which showcases featured photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by other contemporary photographers who depicted the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective.
