Photos Day or Night | The Archive of Hugh Mangum
Published by Red Hook Editions, 2018

Book signing + Artist presentation Sarah Stacke, Maurice Wallace and Brenna Casey

Sarah Stacke, Maurice Wallace, and Brenna Casey will discuss three themes within Hugh Mangum’s photographs, made in the American South at the turn-of-the-twentieth-century. Brenna excavates the animals that appear on Mangum’s glass plate negatives, Sarah looks at representations of mothering in the collection, and Maurice considers the visual intersection of the Black and white Mangum family trees.

Photos Day or Night: The Archive of Hugh Mangum (Red Hook Editions, 2018) by Sarah Stacke, with texts by Maurice Wallace and Martha Sumler, will be available for signings and sales, as well as the limited edition print "Musicians," made from Mangum’s original glass plate negative.

Twenty-one photographs and 2 pieces of ephemera from Mangum’s private family collection will be on display for the evening. This is a rare and special opportunity to view photographs of family members and patrons printed by Mangum in his darkroom over 100 years ago.

Brenna M. Casey is a visiting assistant professor of English at Kenyon College. Her research—situated at the intersections of ethnic studies and gender studies—interrogates transnational currents of American Literature and Visual Culture. Brenna's essays and reviews have appeared in Los Angeles Review of Books, The Assembly, Bitch Magazine, and others. Her book in progress interrogates the policing of borders and boundaries during the first 100 years of photography.

Sarah Stacke is photojournalist and archive investigator based in Brooklyn, New York. She photographs for National Geographic, The New York Times, among others, and is a co-founder of The 400 Years Project, a photography collective looking at the evolution of Native American identity, rights, and representation.

​Maurice Wallace is associate professor of English at Rutgers. His fields of expertise include African American literature and cultural studies, nineteenth-century American literature, the history and representation of American slavery, and gender studies. He is the author of Constructing the Black Masculine: Identity and Ideality in African American Men’s Literature and Culture, 1775-1995, and is co-editor with Shawn Michelle Smith of Pictures and Progress: Early Photography and the Making of African-American Identity.

Foley Gallery + Launch Photo Books are open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 – 5:30 pm, and Sunday from 12-5 pm.
