April 27th, PHX: Panel discussion “Photography’s Changing Media”

Phoenix Art Museum
Panel discussion lead by Rebecca Senf: Photography’s Changing Media

Wednesday, April 27, 2011, 7 pm
Admission: Free and open to the public

“Technological change is par for the course in the practice of photography. Yet, over the last decade, photographers find themselves continuously adjusting to the depletion and extinction of such basic materials as Kodachrome film and printing-out paper.

Norton Family Curator of Photography Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., leads a lively panel discussion on the topic of changing photographic materials. Four photographers whose work appears in the upcoming exhibition Pure Photography, Post-Production and Mixed Media – Thomas Barrow, Linda Connor, Harold Jones and Mark Klett – offer their experiences and insights on how digital photography and other factors have irrevocably changed their creative processes, and the look and feel of their work.”
