Lenses

Lenses

History Radio
Episode 7

We look at the city from different starting points, through different lenses, narrowing our view to make sense of a big, old, complicated city. Peter Derrick traces the city's history from its subway map. Photographer, Joanna Ebenstein explains how the same artifacts can tell different stories. Hasia Diner examines the recastings of the Lower East Side. Finally, the Place Matters Project tackles the city point by point.

EXTRA, bonus feature -
Joanna Ebenstein talks more her project of photographing vintage anatomical models and other specimens from medical museums.
