Opportunity #2: Photography fans, come to the U of L for a day of lectures and discussions on the nature of photography as history and document. Brought to you by the U of L's Center for arts and culture partnerships (the same hub that coordinated last spring's public art and the city...yay) This program asks: "What are the relationships between photography, history and documentation?" The conference brings together authors, photographers, curators and scholars to explore these connections and more at an October 14th University of Louisville conference. The event is in conjunction with the Louisville Photo Biennial. Speakers include Shelby Lee Adams, longtime photographer of Appalachia; Pulitzer Prizewinning photojournalist Lucian Perkins; Matt Wrbican, Andy Warhol Museum archivist; Tom Rankin, director of Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies; and Molly Bingham, photographer and filmmaker noted for her work in Iraq, Rwanda and Eastern Congo."
