“Well, I do feel that a lot of contemporary photographers are looking at the history of photography and questioning how older photographs have informed our contemporary understandings, for example, of race. You certainly see that in the Myra Greene photographs, where she used that older 19th century printing process, the ambrotype, to allude to photography’s historical role in teaching people how to see African-Americans not as individuals but as racial types.” Sarah Greenough in conversation with Miriam Leuchter • American Photo
