Carl Fuldner is an art historian, curator, and photographer whose work engages photography’s role in mediating humans’ relationship with the natural world and its non-human inhabitants. His current projects include a cultural history of wildlife photography set in the mid-1890s, and a critical account of photography’s role in formation of the modern environmental movement from 1955–1962. Since 2013, he has also been involved in a photographic research project using bird specimens from natural history museums to track atmospheric pollution from the 1880s through the present. Carl holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Chicago, and he is currently the Marcia Brady Tucker Fellow in the Department of Photography at the Yale University Art Gallery.
