Let us now Praise Famous Men with Susan Stang

April 22nd, 2017

Let us now Praise Famous Men, the great classic of image/text collaboration by author James Agee and photographer Walker Evans, was published in 1941.  It represents an attempt to document the lives of three tenant families through photographs and words, based on time both spent in Alabama with these families during the summer of 1936.  It is an unusual book with a unique structure.  It attempts to use words in an experimental way to express truth.  For some, it is a book that keeps trying to begin without success and many find it hard to read without some guideposts to help them through.  I have read and have taught this book many times.  She will speak about its history, its context and its structure and offer some thoughts on how to read it.

How to Take Better Pictures with Ed Crim

February 21, 2017

 Mark Twain commented that “You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus”. Learning to see the world around us is the real key to getting great photographs. Anyone can take a picture, but not everyone can make a memorable image, one that makes an impact on the viewer. So how do we learn to see differently? You could call it “thinking inside the box”, the box of your camera’s viewfinder. So, give us just one hour of your time and that’s the road we hope to start you down; the road of seeing what you’ve overlooked, an awakening to film director Aaron Rose’s vision that “in the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.”
