December 8th- Deborah Willis in Philadelphia

(UPDATE:  See today’s NYT Sunday Book Review – feature title in Jennifer Baszile’s “Holiday Books: PHOTOGRAPHY” is Posing Beauty: African Images from the 1890’s to the Present)

Photographer and Educator Deborah Willis will be speaking at the Philadelphia Free Library about the curatorial project Posing Beauty: African American Images from the 1890s to the Present on Tuesday, December 8 at 7:30 pm

For more info click here.
About Deb Willis from the Free Library website:

“A graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art, Deborah Willis–a 2005 Guggenheim Fellow and a 2000 MacArthur Fellow–chairs the Photography Department at New York University. Dedicated to sharing visual representations of the African American experience, Willis authored the groundbreaking and highly praised book Reflections in Black, a collection of photographs of African American life from 1840 to the present, as well as The Black Female Body and VanDerZee: The Portraits of James VanDerZee. Her new book, Posing Beauty, was inspired by a realization she had as a student in the 1970s: that images of black beauty did not exist in the mainstream culture. This arresting new collection of photographs of African Americans, from Billie Holiday to Muhammad Ali to Michele Obama, redefines what it means to be “beautiful.”

These are just examples. We welcome new stories and approaches to documenting this important topic. If photographers are not sure if their stories fit into our definition of the global recession, they are encouraged to inquire at info@socialdocumentary.net.

Sunday, November 29th through December 6th

Sunday, November 29th through December 6th – The Picture Black Friday Project will be accepting submissions for one week.
Details: Photographers can submit up to 5 of their best images of and about Black Friday. Up to 400 characters of supporting text may accompany your images.
From the announcement:
On Monday November 9th,we launched a new project called “Picture Black Friday“.
The project is an open call to photographers nationwide to photograph the event that unofficially rings in the holiday shopping frenzy here in the U.S.
Some of you may remember that last year at a Walmart in Long Island, NY, just before the store was to open at 5 am the doors shattered under the weight of the crowd  and security guard  Jdimytai Damour was trampled to death as a stampede of shoppers barreled over him.  The news was quickly forgotten, but it got us thinking of the countless factors that went into to this unnecessary death.
Picture Black Friday is a project that aims to revisit the forces at work – a worsening economy, financial instability, fear and how everyday people get swept in to this mentality of the masses often manipulated
by corporations hoping to create hype – all on the morning after Thanksgiving.
I came up with the idea for the project after discussing some of these same issues with fellow artists last year.  Over the last few weeks and months I’ve teamed with Jake Stangel of Too Much Chocolate and Joerg Colberg of Conscientious, to launch the project.  We’ve also put together an amazing group of people to jury the submissions,  photographers Amy Stein and Brian Ulrich, curator/photographer Jon Feinstein of Humble Arts Foundation and Stephen Frailey, photographer and the head of the SVA Photography Department, in addition to Joerg, Jake and myself (John Saponara)
Were hoping to collect some of the best works that are submitted and initially create an online gallery, but then a selected artist from the group will also be featured on “Conscientious” and Too Much Chocolate.
For complete details please see our website, www.pictureblackfriday.org
