At the turn of the last century, world-renowned photographer Alfred Stieglitz was “determined that photography would be accepted as art.” He championed Pictorialism as the process that would achieve this end. Join us for an interesting and wide-ranging discussion in which four contemporary photographers—whose work is informed by the history of photography and its various processes—discuss their thoughts and ideas on photography’s foundational elements: Light, Time, and Apparatus. They’ll offer reflection on these influences in the creation of their work with an emphasis on control of the art during a time of commercial standardization and how this is used to counter the anonymous quality of much of contemporary photography. Presented with F295: Continued Explorations of 21st Century Photography Conference, June 7–10. To register for the full conference, visit www.f295.org/2012. Galleries open until 9 p.m.
