The VSW Audio Collection contains over 700 audio recordings of artist talks, conversations, interviews, lectures, and symposia that took place at this pioneering educational facility. Oral documents were made through recordings on ¼ inch open reel and cassette audiotapes. These discussions and presentations are invaluable primary resources from the history of photography, photographic education, artists’ books, and independent publishing in this country and abroad.
Recordings include lectures with Diane Arbus, Eikoh Hosoe, Nathan Lyons, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Beaumont Newhall, Martha Rosler, Minor White, and many others. Major topics include the Society for Photographic Education and conversation around VSW’s Options in Independent Publishing Symposium (1979) . The Audio Collection also holds tapes and recordings relating to “Maybe But Not Necessarily Music,” which was hosted by Bob Doyle at VSW and broadcast on 90.5 FM WBER in the early 1990s.
Below is a small selection of digitized recordings. Listen to more audio from the archive at VSW’s Soundcloud.
