7 – 8 p.m.
Presenter: Marvin Heiferman.
Explore photography's central role in shaping our lives with Marvin Heiferman, editor of Photography Changes Everything. In his book Heiferman compiled hundreds of images and responses from leading authorities on photography, exploring the many ways in which photographs package information and values, demand and hold attention, and shape our knowledge of and experience in the world. He will explore how our lives have been transformed through photographic imagery. This is a unique opportunity to better understand the history, practice and power of photography at this transitional moment in visual culture.
Heiferman has focused on the influence of photographic images on culture and history in projects such as "Fame after Photography" at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (1999), and "Image World: Art and Media Culture" at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1989). A contributing editor to Art in America, he serves on the faculty of both the International Center of Photography/Bard College and the School of Visual Art's MFA programs in photography. He was creative consultant to the Smithsonian Photography Initiative from 2005 to 2011.
