Banned, Burned, Seized and CensoredPosted: September 13, 2011
I must be the most cultured, talented and sophisticated woman in America because friend Christine approached me to act as the photographer of record for the opening of a new exhibition at the Harry Ransom Center, Banned, Burned, Seized and Censored, a look into the art of censorship in America.
Maybe she asked me because I hold the previously stated qualities, or maybe because she knows I’m a closet dork and love the whole censorship study. But more realistically, maybe she knew I am a sucker who will do anything so long as I can bring a camera and there is gratis food and drink. Whatever. I heard the words “photography” and “censorship” and immediately, I was in.
If the pictures didn’t convince you, take my word for it. It’s an exhibition worth seeing.
