Intersections in Photography
Thursday, October 6th, 7pm – Intersections in Photography No.4
ACP’s Intersections in Photography series features influential photographers presenting their work and addressing a related theme.
The theme of this latest forum is Visions of Family.
The panel for this presentation will be made of up of the following three prominent photographers.
- Julie Blackmon
- Cori Pepelnjak
- Dona Schwartz
The Intersections in Photography forum series is made possible by the UT Plan II Honors Program and is held at the Joynes Reading Room on the UT campus. We plan one or two IIP presentations per UT semester.
Julie Blackmon‘s book Domestic Vacations explores what she calls “the conflation of art and life” with images that are “both fictional and autobiographical”. Inspired by 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, Blackmon’s colorful images of chaotic everyday life include an element of fantasy. Her work has been widely exhibited, and she was selected by American Photo as an Emerging Photographer of 2008 and as one of PDN’s prestigious “30”.
Cori Pepelnjak‘s ongoing project JoJo exemplifies her bold and compassionate approach to documentary photography. The project JoJo was awarded first prize in Center’s (formerly Santa Fe Center for Photography) 2009 Project Competition. Her work has been exhibited at the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle and IFP in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Dona Schwartz is an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. Her photography explores everyday life and culture. Her most recent book, In The Kitchen, was published by Jehrer Verlag in 2009. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Musee de l’Elysee, the George Eastman House, and the Harry Ransom Center.
Since UT students have priority, seating for the public is limited to around 70 and is available on a first come, first seated basis. Friends and members of ACP will have advance notice.
