April 16th-Photographer Peter Feldstein at the Harry Ransom Center

As part of the Harry Ransom Center   Focus on Photography event series Peter Feldstein will be speaking on April 16th at 7pm about his book The Oxford Project.

For information click here.

From the announcement:

In a Focus on Photography event, photographer Peter Feldstein discusses his new book The Oxford Project, a 20-year project photographing and interviewing the residents of Oxford, Iowa, on Thursday, April 16, at 7 p.m. at the Harry Ransom Center. A book signing follows.

In 1984, photographer Peter Feldstein set out to photograph every single resident of his town, Oxford, Iowa (pop. 676). He converted an abandoned storefront on Main Street into a makeshift studio and posted flyers inviting people to stop by. At first they trickled in slowly, but in the end, nearly all of Oxford stood before Feldstein’s lens.

Twenty years later, Feldstein decided to do it again. He invited writer Stephen G. Bloom to join him, and together they went in search of the Oxford residents Feldstein originally shot in 1984. Some had moved. Most had stayed. Others had passed away. All were marked by the passage of time.

What emerges is a living portrait of Small Town, USA, told with the words and images of its residents—then and now—and textured by their own words. It tells the compelling story of one archetypal American community—its struggles, accomplishments, failures, and secrets—and how it has both changed and stayed the same over the course of the years.

Feldstein will read from the book and narrate a slide presentation, followed by a question-and-answer discussion.

Seating is free, but limited.

This program will be WEBCAST live.
