Artist JOHN PFAHL to lecture in Philadelphia on May 17

Noted landscape photographer JOHN PFAHL will speak about his evolution as an artist and the transformation of his art in the digital age at a lecture on May 17th at 7 p.m. at NESBITT HALL, 33rd and Market Streets on the Drexel University campus. Click here for a map of Philadelphia campus.

Pfahl’s work is rooted in many historical sources and landcape subjects. He will speak about his technical methods, which have at times involved digital alterations. His new series “Scrolls” recently on view in an exhibition a the Janet Borden Gallery in NYC, makes use of the computer to radically alter photographs that began as one kind of landscape and ended up another.
