Zoom Talk-Contemporary Photography-Documentary Style Part II
June 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
During this one hour Zoom talk, we will continue to review the exciting work of documentary-style contemporary photographers (1981-Present). Our focus will be on artists who have focused their practice on our changing American and global landscape. Our point of departure will be the 1975/76 watershed exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape which featured works by Robert Adams, Stephen Shore and Hilla and Bernd Becher amongst others. We will also explore the incredible work of Edward Burtynsky, Robert Polidori, and several others. We will close the session setting up the next talk which will focus on photographers whose focus is not to document but rather to create illusions.
