7:00 p.m.

The Aperture Foundation, the Photography Department of Parsons The New School for Design and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School present a new season of panel discussions focusing on photography. The second event is “Framing the Presidency,” which will explore the collision of photography, mass media, and politics in the 2008 presidential campaign and beyond. Artists and media experts will share their experiences and explore the power of photography in constructing our image of the presidency. Panelists include photographer Tim Davis; Robert Hariman, chair of Communication Studies at Northwestern University; New York Times campaign picture editor photographer David Scull; and Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Todd Heisler. Presented with generous support from the Kettering Family Foundation and the Henry Nias Foundation. The program is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
