Jennifer Greenburg is a photographer based in Chicago, IL. In her series Revising History, Jennifer alters vintage found photographs by inserting herself into the image, creating something new that comments on the ways that the style and glamor of the post-war era glosses over the very real discrimination and gender inequality of the time. We talked about Revising History, the ways that photographs lie, and the need for visual literacy in our society. Then in the second segment, Jennifer chose vintage clothing as her topic.
