In the second and final clip of Luc Sante's talk on his book, Folk Photography: The American Real-Photo Postcard, 1905–1930, Sante takes questions from the audience.
Topics include how Sante became interested in collecting these photo postcards and where he finds them; the effects these postcards had on shaping a collective opinion on western America; the demise of the postcard as a valued means for communication; the present value of these antique images; and how he catalogs and interprets these images.
You can watch the first part of this event on our multimedia page and vimeo account.
This artist's talk took place on November 17, 2009 at Aperture Gallery and is presented by the Parsons Department of Photography at The New School.
