Tod Papageorge Lecture: Looking Out

Tod Papageorge began to photograph during his last semester at the University of New Hampshire, where he graduated in 1962 with a bachelor of arts in English literature. In 1965 he moved to New York City and was quickly accepted into a small circle of photographers engaged in transforming the documentary “style” of the medium into a poetic form driven more by subjective perception than journalistic literalism. During the 1970s, he received two Guggenheim Fellowships and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Grants and, in 1979, was named the Walker Evans Professor of Photography at the Yale School of Art. His photographic work has been widely exhibited internationally, and is represented in over 30 major public collections. It has also been published in three monographs. In 2009, Papageorge was a Resident at the American Academy in Rome and, in 2010, awarded the Rome Commission in Photography. In 2011, Aperture published Core Curriculum, a collection of his writings on photography and, in 2012, he was honored with the Lucie Award for documentary photography.
