  • About

    Brendan Fay's research focuses on twentieth-century photography and its intersections with art and popular culture. His current book project examines photography and abstraction in the mid-twentieth century; other work in progress considers problems of blankness in photographic theory and the relationship between modernist photography and mid-century theater. A department alumnus, he recently completed a Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities at Stanford University.
