About this EventView map
William Camargo's work entails research, intervention and looking at new forms of displacement in local history. Starting with his long term series Origins & Displacements: Making Sense of Place, Histories & Possibilities, in which he responds to found archives of his hometown of Anaheim. William will describe a brief history of photography, as an imperialist/colonial tool, to a new history of artists of color using the camera to create a counter history of their communities. Using a contemporary photography praxis, he poses the question of re-staging canonical images of photographic history, such as in his series After Divola, As Far As I Can Get in 10 Seconds, which comments on the act of running away in a brown body.
