Who was behind the camera of some of advertising’s most memorable and engaging campaigns? Linda Zimmerman, the daughter of the photographer and Director of the John G. Zimmerman Photography Archive, will be joined by advertising historian Ed Timke, PhD from Duke University. They will present a fascinating journey through a new exhibition from this famous American photographer, one of the premier magazine photographers who worked for Life, Time, Ebony, Sports Illustrated, Saturday Evening Post, and other notable publications. Participants will delve into the creative world of how photography has shaped print and television advertising, and you'll discover the secrets behind many familiar advertisements from the Mad Men Era.
