One quick snap

. May 18, 2012.

Photography can change everything you thought you knew in an instant. The medium has that power. The University of Michigan Museum of Art’s Face of Our Time is a good example of that type of significance, drawing on a "documentary style" that records what often is swept under the rug — the vulnerable in the aftermath of a disaster, the suffering of illegal immigrants, the horrors in Africa. So don't miss UMMA Director Joseph Rosa’s interview of exhibition curator and curator of the photography department at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Sandra Phillips, on Sunday, December 4. 2pm. Helmut Stern Auditorium, 525 S. State. 734-764-0395. www.umma.umich.edu
