Modern Photography in New England, with Lewis Shepard
Thursdays from 11am – 1pm at Wellfleet Preservation Hall
Class dates: April 25, May 2, 9, 16, 23.
Modern Photography in New England will be a lecture and discussion class examining the work of photographers who worked in the many modes of expression. We will see how abstraction, documents, portraiture, surrealism, the natural world and commercial usage provided a basis for the greatly diverse presentation of many artists.
New England has been a center for the growth of photographic technology, from the use of daguerreotypes, stereo views, strobe lighting, instant cameras and now the digital age. Photography has enjoyed and employed these technical advances with enhanced results.
Some Artists to consider:
