About the Program

Rachel Schreiber uses photography to explore the stories of individuals often marginalized by society.  Using her installation “Site Reading” in California Dreaming: Jewish Life in the Bay Area from the Gold Rush to the Present as a jumping off point, Schreiber and University of California, Santa Cruz, Professor Martin Berger discuss photography and social justice—issues central to the work in The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League 1936–1951. Schreiber and Berger examine the intersection of people and place and discuss how documenting changing local landscapes through photography can tell not just the story of a place, but also the history of the people who inhabited it.
