June 11th, NYC: MediaStorm Premiere “A Shadow Remains” & “Rite of Passage”

MediaStorm
World Premiere of Phillip Toledano’s A Shadow Remains and Maggie Steber’s Rite of Passage
Monday, June 11, 2012, doors at 6:30, films at 7:30 pm
Free and open to the public. RSVP required.

Phillip Toledano and Maggie Steber are both celebrated photographers who turned their cameras on themselves and the ones closest to them at a time of deep introspection—the end of their parents’ lives.

While both originally started photographing these events for their personal albums, their experiences magnified in importance over the years spent with their aging parents. As time passed, caring for their parents brought them through a process of self discovery that taught them as much about themselves as the loved ones for which they were caring.

In the end, both Phillip and Maggie were left with bodies of work which relate not only their personal journeys, but speak to universal themes of love, life and family. MediaStorm is proud to have partnered with both Phillip and Maggie to tell their individual stories.

On June 11 MediaStorm will present both films for the first time. After the screening Phillip and Maggie will be available for a question and answer session about their experiences.

March 1st, San Francisco: “Muybridge and His Legacy” with the exhbition “Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change”

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Muybridge and His Legacy in conjunction with the exhibition Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change.

TODAY, March 1, 2011 at 12:00 p.m.
Phyllis Wattis Theatre

“Lisa Sutcliffe, assistant curator of photography at SFMOMA, presents three short films inspired by Muybridge and his proto-cinematic work.  Including the dazzling Retrospectroscope by acclaimed local filmmaker, Kerry Laitala, and Hollis Frampton’s lyrical ode to photography and memory, Nostalgia from 1973.

Museum and program admission are free.”

About the Exhibition
“Best known for his revolutionary studies of human and animal locomotion, which evolved into some of the earliest motion pictures, Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was also an accomplished landscape photographer, a pioneering documentarian, and a restlessly inventive entrepreneur. This retrospective is the first to examine the full scope of Muybridge’s vision and his pivotal role in the creative transformation of 19th-century culture. The British-born Muybridge began his artistic career in the 1860s in California — then as now a fertile ground for innovation — and his images vividly capture a rapidly changing West. Bringing together hundreds of photographs and other objects made between 1858 and 1893, the exhibition offers a panoramic view of Muybridge’s work within the landscape of his times.”
The exhibition will be open until June 7, 2011.
