Hello! I'm a second-year graduate student in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture at Brown University, specializing in the history and theory of photography in relation to modern and contemporary art. My research interests include the landscape in representation, the legacy of the 1975 George Eastman House exhibition New Topographics, the rise of color in post-war art photography, directorial and tableau photographs, and art theory and criticism. In 2011 I received my B.A. in Art History and a minor in Visual Art from the University of Chicago. My focus within my major was the critical reception of photography from its invention to the present, and I wrote my senior thesis on the modernist American photographer Paul Strand and his work in Mexico in the 1930s. I hope to pursue a career in academia and the art world more broadly, through a combination of both curating and teaching.
