Free Public Print Viewing

Postmortem Photographs


October 28, 2017

Free public print viewing

Saturday, October 28, 2017, 3:30pm - 6:30pm

Drop in on Saturday, October 28th anytime between 3:30 and 6:30 for a retrospective look at funerary photography. We will be embracing the spirit of memento mori with a free print viewing open to the public. Selections from the Steve and Mary DeGenaro postmortem and memorial photograph collection will include everything from daguerreotypes from the 1850s to modern color prints.  We invite you to consider these tragic and often touching photographs that preserve the intimacy and connection between family and lost. Please join us as we explore photography’s role in our ever-evolving death and remembrance rituals.

This public print viewing is organized by Alyse Yeargan, UCR ARTSblock Gluck Fellow at UCR.
