On Monday, December 14, the BFA Photography Department, in conjunction with the International Center of Photography, Dear Dave, magazine and Chronicle Books, is hosting an event celebrating the new book Photowisdom: Master Photographers and their Art (Chronicle Books, 2009) by Lewis Blackwell. The author, editor and former creative head of Getty Images looks at some of the leading photographers of the day, talking about their work, the value of their insights, and how the viewer and critics take an image into another space.
The event takes place at 7pm at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street, with a lecture by Blackwell and a slide presentation featuring the work of photographers Steve Pyke and Philip Toledano—whom Blackwell spotlights in Photowisdom—followed by a Q&A with the audience and a book signing. The event is free and open to the public.
