One of the photographers discussed in this chapter is Frances Benjamin Johnson, a white female photographer who took a series of photographs of the African-American and Native American students at the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in 1899. Read the article by Sarah Bassnett, â€œFrom Public Relations to Art: Exhibiting Frances Benjamin Johnsonâ€™s Hampton Institute Photographsâ€ (pay most attention to the beginning and end of the article, but you can skim the middle section, pages 160-165): attached or at http://www.torontophotographyseminar.org/sites/default/files/uploads/5_Bassnett.pdf. Then, write your post by reflecting on how you think the meaning of Johnsonâ€™s photographs changed when they were exhibited in different venues and contexts. Finish by describing a new context for Johnsonâ€™s photographs: where would you display them, and what would this new context say about them? At John Jay, in your home, on Tumblr, on a billboard over the Lincoln Tunnel, in the White Houseâ€¦ wherever you can imagine!
