Book Talk: Color: American Photography Transformed - Contemporary Austin

www.thecontemporaryaustin.org [cached]

John Rohrbach is the senior curator of photographs at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the author of Color: American Photography Transformed. Color tells, for the first time, the fascinating story of color's integration into American fine art photography and how its acceptance revolutionized the practice of art. Tracing the development of color photography from the first color photograph in 1851 to digital photography, Rohrbach describes photographers' initial rejection of color, their decades-long debates over what color brings to photography, and how their gradual acceptance of color released photography from its status as a second-tier art form. He shows how this absorption of color instigated wide acceptance of a fundamentally new definition of photography, one that blends photography's documentary foundations with the creative flexibility of painting.

The book presents three essays: the first by Dr. John Rohrbach, project director and the Carter's associate curator of photographs; the second by independent historian Rebecca Solnit, who discusses how Porter's imagery has come to establish the model of contemporary nature photography; and the third by Porter's son Jonathan, a scholar of Chinese history at the University of New Mexico.

...
Prior to coming to the Carter, Rohrbach worked at George Eastman House and was director of the Paul Strand Archive. He received his doctorate from the Program in American Civilization at the University of Delaware in 1993.

His photographic interests range widely from documentary and landscape to portraiture, but he is not interested in reviewing nudes or commercial work.
