Past Tense: California, The Annenberg Space for Photography, Sunday, 28. April 2019

Past Tense: California is the first project from the archival storytelling project of The New York Times. As we digitize some six million photo prints in our files, dating back more than 100 years, we are using those images to bring the events and characters of the past to life in the present.
With Past Tense, a new archival storytelling project of The New York Times, we are mining our vast photo library for vivid narratives and compelling characters from the past. To begin, we looked to California. What can we see through the long lens of history, and how did distance shape our coverage across the 20th century?
The images in this project reveal a state where history, memory, hard facts and emotional truth connect and collide. To enhance these photographs’ value as artifacts and research tools, we are presenting these images with some of the “metadata” from the reverse side of each print.
Since 1851, The New York Times has been on the ground reporting stories from around the globe that no one else was telling. How we tell those stories has changed, but our mission to seek the truth and help people understand the world has remained constant.
If you are unable to attend, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance, and we will release your spot in the talk to someone on the waitlist. Please be on time, if you are not checked in by the start of the talk, we will release your spot to the next person on the waitlist. Thank you!
