Lectures Next Week at School of Visual Arts (SVA), New York City

Here are the lectures I’m most excited about in next week’s lineup at SVA – two talks by artists, and one on an emerging gallery scene in Lower Manhattan:

The MPS Digital Photography Department presents a lecture by renowned landscape photographer Stephen Johnson, a pioneer who has helped shape the technology for today’s (and tomorrow’s) digital photographers. Based on his latest book, Johnson will discuss the history of electronic imaging, the transformation of the darkroom, ethics in the digital age, and trends in digital photography for the future.
