Talks with the Artists: A Bob Fitch Retrospective

Friday, January 22, 2021 - 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm PDT (live captioning provided)

Join us for a special edition of the Talks with the Artists series as art advisor Danielle Wohl will speak with Stanford University Libraries special collections and conservationists staff on Bob Fitch and his works.

From Watsonville, California, the activist photographer Bob Fitch was best known for his work that captured iconic images of major figures of movements for civil rights, peace and social justice, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Dorothy Day and for images of the everyday people who fought for change in these movements.

The Bob Fitch photography archive at Stanford contains more than 200,000 images, primarily black and white photographs and negatives, spanning the period from 1965 to the present.

Guest Speakers:

Elizabeth Ryan

Ann K.D. Myers
Rare Books Cataloger, Dept. of Special Collections and University Archives

Benjamin Stone
Curator for American and British History and Associate Director, Special Collections
