Deborah Turbeville: Beyond Fashion
Tanenbaum Lecture with Nathalie Herschdorfer

In the 1920s, fashion photography became a genre in its own right. Although originating in the commercial sphere, it also evolved at the hands of great artists. Over a career spanning 40 years, Deborah Turbeville developed a unique visual style, creating narrative photographs and collages that evoked her inner world. In this lecture, Nathalie Herschdorfer, Director of Photo Elysée (Lausanne, Switzerland), shares insights from her most recent exhibition and book Deborah Turbeville: Photocollage, which offers a new appreciation of Turbeville's contribution to the history of photography.

Herschdorfer's book Deborah Turbeville: Photocollage (2023) will be available for purchase at the event. Book signing to follow the lecture.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Otherworldly: Deborah Turbeville Photographs
