Accidental Photographer: Seoul 1969 | "Seoul in the 1960s" lecture and Artist Q&A
The Q&A with the artist will be preceded by a short lecture on Seoul and Korea in the late 60's by Se-Mi Oh, Assistant Professor of Korean History and Visual Culture in the Department of Asian Languages & Cultures.
A light lunch will be provided for the first 25 people in attendance.
Margaret Condon Taylor received her B.A. in English from Cornell University and Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Michigan. As a Peace Corps volunteer in Seoul in 1969, she photographed the changing scenes of ordinary Korean life in a rapidly modernizing society. These photographs are being exhibited for the first time in nearly fifty years.
Photographs have been selected in collaboration with Associate Professor Youngju Ryu, Asian Languages and Cultures, and Professor David Chung, Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.
