MFA Photography, Video, and Related Media presents a presentation by David Campany on his latest book, So Present, So Invisible: Conversations on Photography, followed by a signing. A longtime friend of the department, Campany has contributed to publications by chair, Charles Traub, and features critique faculty Lucas Blalock in his new work. RSVP here.
From the author's website:
"There is a lot of casual chat about photography, just as there is a lot of casual photography. But there have always been articulate voices, able to see past the obvious, around the distracting and through the trivial to say something about the more profound aspects of the medium. Many of those voices have belonged to image makers. Writer and curator David Campany talks with world-class artists about their various creative phases and their rapport with the medium of photography. These conversations go beyond the simple interview to reveal complex relations between art and photography, photography and the world, word and image."
The publication includes conversations with Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Daniel Blaufuks, Robert Cumming, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Lewis Baltz, John Stezaker, Paul Graham, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Jeff Wall, Lucas Blalock, Susan Meiselas, Victor Burgin, William Klein, Stephen Shore.
