Photography Workshop with Genevra Kornbluth

On 30-31 May, art historian and art photographer Dr. Genevra Kornbluth will host a two-day photography workshop in collaboration with the Department of Art History, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Smart Museum. Taking good pictures of objects often poses a challenge, especially so in museums and galleries: who does not frequently struggle with the reflective glass of vitrines, high-powered spot lights, or the physical properties (surface, size, shape) of the artifacts themselves?
