Photographer Talk #1: Citizen Artist in the Connecticut Landscape: Taking a Stand

Thursday, November 5, 2pm

Tom Zetterstrom, Photographer

As a photographer of trees and landscape, Zetterstrom has observed, documented, and spoken to the issues that threaten to impact the Connecticut landscape in his photographic portfolios such as Portraits of American Trees and Moving Point of View. Through his photographic work, Zetterstrom underscores the dangers of industrial expansion, modern transportation systems, and more recently, the impact of invasive plant species that each threaten to transform the distinct forested landscape of Connecticut.

Standart2Photographer Talk #2: A Last Great Place

Thursday, November 12, 2pm

Joseph Standart, Photographer

Standart captures the wonders of the Lower Connecticut River Valley in his photography. Approaching his subject by foot, kayak, or motorboat, the photographer focuses his interest on the natural beauty found in and around Lyme, an area designated as “A Last Great Place” by the Nature Conservancy, one of 40 such places in the United States. During this presentation, Standart shares both his artistic vision as well as some trade “secrets” for creating dynamic images of a remarkable place.

 

HendricksonPhotographer Talk #3: Questions for a Stony Landscape: A Personal Search for Work and Ritual

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS LECTURE HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL JANUARY PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR DATE.

Ted Hendrickson, Associate Professor of Art, Connecticut College

The Connecticut landscape holds the subtle evidence of great swaths of time. Hendrickson photographs  stonework marking the man-altered landscape, capturing its potential evidence as work and ritual, as sculpture and talisman. Barely hidden on the fringe of encroaching suburbs, these propped boulders, cairns, ancient chambers, and aged walls represent the activities of local people of the past, however shrouded in mystery. Who built them? When? And Why?
