The Artist in a Professional World: Three Photographers Three Perspectives
Posted on April 24th, 2014
How does one manage to make a living as a photographer and still stay true to their personal vision? The three photographers, all at different stages in their careers and all taking different paths, have one thing in common. They have never forgotten why they became photographers in the first place, to make pictures for themselves. The panel will include Paris Visone, Eliot Dudik and David J. Carol. Each photographer will present their work and talk about how they balance the commercial and personal aspects of their lives and careers. Following the presentations there will be a panel discussion moderated by David J. Carol that will include a Q&A with the audience. Books of the photographers work will be available for purchase.
Is there a photographer anywhere in the world who hasn’t struggled with this at one time or another. And so here is a fantastic opportunity to hear three diverse photographers talk about their own journeys to find their place as photographers.
On April 29th, the Penumbra Foundation is presenting the lecture: The Artist in a Professional World: Three Photographers Three Perspective I’ve heard this is sold out, but there is a waiting list.
David J. Carol is a New York City photographer and Director of Photography at CBS Outdoor. He also writes a monthly column for Rangefinder Magazine as well being weekly contributor to PDN’s Emerging Photographer. He has published four monographs to great acclaim, and is active and opinionated on social media. I think he’ll give a real time, real life view of being a photographer that will be invaluable.
Paris Visone is a Boston documentary photographer and faculty member at The Art Institute of Boston well known for her concert photography, traveling the globe with numerous bands. Most important to her is the ever continuing life project titled “Years”. She describes it as a self portrait that only ends when she does.
Eliot Dudik is a fine art photographer, currently exploring Southern culture and landscape in a large format documentary style. He was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and one of Oxford American Magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art. His first monograph, ROAD ENDS IN WATER, was published in 2010.
Each of the photographers is at a different stage of their career, and you’ll get the chance to hear them talk and show their work. Following the presentations there will be a panel discussion moderated by David J. Carol that will include a Q&A with the audience.
