Anderman Photography Lecture
Aug 23, 2018
Join us for what is sure to be an interesting talk with photographer Sharon Harper. Harper’s photography explores the relationship between technology and perception through landscape imagery. Her work is in the collection of major art institutions and she is currently a Professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University. Several examples of Sharon Harper’s photographs are included in “New Territory: Landscape Photography Today,” on view June 24, 2018 through September 16, 2018 at the Denver Art Museum. The landscape as well as the view of the day and night sky from the world below are significant to her work. Her photographs begin to reveal the role photography can play in our relationship with the landscape and consider how the camera can act as an extension of the human eye capturing what we are not able to see on our own.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The Anderman Photography Lecture Series presents talks by the preeminent creators and thinkers in photography today. Sponsored by the DAM Photography Department. Series funding is generously provided by Evan and Elizabeth Anderman.
