Here is what our very own Dr. Elizabeth Engelhardt has to say about Marshall Wright:
Marshall Wright, one of Austin’s most accomplished food photographers, a Foodways Texas member, and a generally gifted food writer, thinker, and artist, will be leading a workshop for the AMS community. How do you use your camera to tell a parallel story when conducting an interview or oral history? How do you do it even when you’re not a photographer? How could we use images to enrich AMS research more broadly? What might the visual add to our written and spoken texts in practice?
You can learn more about Marshall (and view some of his photography projects) here. You can follow him on Twitter here.
