biography

Russell Lord is the Freeman Family Curator of Photographs at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). His deepest area of expertise is the origins of photography, but Lord has written and lectured widely on almost every moment in the history of photography. His recent publications include: Looking Again: Photography at the New Orleans Museum of Art (2018), Gordon Parks: The Making of an Argument (2013). Much of his research focuses on the relationships between photography and other visual media, and questions of visual literacy in the making and use of photography.
