Person, Place, Thing: Photographic Practices in the Studio

Friday, September 12, 2014, 1:30 p.m.

The Edward Steichen Photography Galleries, third floor

Uncover the variety of ways photographers can capture images within the confines of a studio space. Play with and parse the categories of people, places, and things as you consider portraiture vs. figure studies, the depiction of specific studio interiors vs. studios shown as non-spaces, and the documentation of objects in still-life arrangements vs. the complete absence of recognizable things.

In conjunction with the exhibition A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
