Join art historian Alette Fleischer to explore the evolution of photography in the United States. A new medium and a new nation, twentieth-century American photographers embraced the new art form wholeheartedly, producing iconic images of the American way of life. Through the camera lens, we will look at how art and culture are intrinsically linked.

In the USA, photography matured as an independent art form. Photographers, both male and female, captured the construction of America: the cities, countryside, and societies. Nobody could escape from the eye of the camera. From politicians to members of the First Nations, from the high society to poor peddlers, everyone was a subject to be captured on film. Equally, the seemingly never resting photographers revealed in photos the vast planes, lush hills, and the breathtakingly gorgeous valleys and mountain ranges of the American landscape.

Many images taken in the twentieth century have become iconic and associated with the uniqueness of the American identity. In our exploration, we will focus not only on these classic images or by the most famous photographers but also introduce some lesser-known pictures and people. Finally, we will take a look at the future and the next generation of photographers.

Led by an expert on the history of art and culture, and amateur photographer, Dr. Alette Fleischer, this interactive seminar will focus on the “coming of age” of photography that is intricately tied to that of the USA. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased feeling of the importance of photography for American history.

Amsterdam-born Alette Fleischer has a degree in Art History and a PhD in 17th Dutch History, focusing on gardens, science, and technology. She has curated several exhibitions, publishes articles, presents lectures, and a proud Context Expert. For Context Travel, Alette has led the Rijksmuseum tours many times. Motto: staying curious is key for being a good historian.
