BLIND SPOT: “Collapsing Images” Forum at New York Public Library on November 3rd

BLIND SPOT: Collapsing Images

Saturday, November 3, 2007 at 7:00 PM
Celeste Bartos Forum, Humanities and Social Sciences Library
5th Avenue and 42nd Street

Blind Spot is the international source book of photography-based fine art for artists, collectors, creative directors, designers, curators and art lovers. Blind Spot publishes new works by the renowned artists and discovers vital new work by up-and-coming artists. Thirteen years old, Blind Spot has gained an international reputation for being a visual magazine that does not talk about imagery—the content is imagery.

Collapsing Images Photography Forum

As a counterpoint to the visual conversation provided by Blind Spot magazine, the Collapsing Images forum gives a voice to the issues surrounding photography and explores the role of photography in the media and popular culture. Collapsing Images presents three vital discussions led by leading photographers, filmmakers, critics, and thinkers.

A Conversation between Jack Pierson & Jerry Schatzberg

Money, Money, Money, Money — Moderated by Glenn O’Brien
Panelists: Vince Aletti, Philip Lorca di Corcia, Dennis Freedman, Doug Lloyd, Glen Luchford, Andy Spade, Olivier Zahm

Truth and Authenticity in Photography
Panelists: Mitch Epstein, Paul Graham, Katy Grannan, Danny Lyon, Taryn Simon

will discuss her painstakingly orchestrated photographs, which compel the viewer to think about humankind’s celebration of nature and our ceaseless desire to control it. The luscious, digitally produced landscapes featured in the artist’s first monograph, Beate Gütschow: LS/S (Aperture, October 2007), draw on the work and traditions of Romantic-era painters as well as photo legends such as Lewis Baltz and Bernd and Hilla Becher.”
