Labor Film Series In a small town in Serbia, day laborer Nikola is ordered to give up his two children to social services after poverty and hunger drive his wife to commit a desperate act. Until he can provide adequate conditions for their upbringing, the children will be placed in foster care. Introduction by Vincent Serravallo, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at Rochester Institute of Technology.
The works presented in this exhibition showcase different ways that photographers see, depict, or manipulate the concept of space. All of the works are recent gifts to the George Eastman Museum collection, which the museum actively expands through donations and purchases.
This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlight the goings on in 1922—most notably the opening of the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Theatre in downtown Rochester.
