Photographer SAM ABELL will be speaking at the College of DuPage; this event is open to the public. If you have not had the chance to hear Sam speak, don’t miss this opportunity!
From the COD event website:
“Sam Abell’s thirty-year career has been dedicated to achieving artistic expression through documentary photography. He has pursued his goals primarily through his lengthy, in-depth coverages for National Geographic magazine and its Book Division. At the same time, he has maintained a career as an artist, teacher, and author.
He has applied himself, particularly, to the photography of cultural landscape: He explores ways in which places can be purely recorded, with images simultaneously shaped by the photographer’s imagination.
In addition, he has maintained a personal black-and-white photographic diary that documents the life behind the artistic process. In 1990 Mr. Abell’s work was the subject of a one-man exhibition at the International Center of Photography, New York City. A companion book, Stay This Moment, was published at that time.
In addition to his photography Mr. Abell is a member of the board of directors of the Santa Fe Center For Photography, the George Eastman House, and the University of Virginia Art Museum. In 2002 he collaborated with Leah Bendavid-Val on a retrospective of his life and work titled Sam Abell: The Photographic Life, published by Rizzoli (read article in Digital Journalist here). He is also the author of the book Seeing Gardens, published by Random House in 2001.”
