PAC Meeting - Thursday, February 4 @ 7pm - Sanders McNew
The Photo Arts Collective of the New Haven Arts Council is pleased to present Sanders McNew who will talk about "Vision and Photography,"
Sanders will explore the ways one finds a voice and something to say with a camera, in part by recounting how he came to shoot his naked portrait series and to write Double Exposures. This would be a more engaging subject for a group to consider than any talk about just the mechanics
of taking pictures and making prints. Sanders will bring a box of 8x10 traditionally made prints from the series.
Come hear Sanders talk on a subject that we've all seen and admired the product. The talk will be at the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven at 7pm, Thursday, February 4.
Sanders McNew, 52, is a lawyer and photographer working in New York City. A native of Portsmouth, Virginia, Sanders moved to New York in 1991 and soon after began to teach himself film photography with a Rolleiflex. He and his wife, photographer Melanie King, both work in black-and-white film photography, and their domestic disputes center mostly on who gets to use the darkroom (a bedroom closet). Most recently, Sanders has published Double Exposures: Essays in Portraiture (Blurb 2009), a collection of essays and portraits that together question and challenge the nature of portraiture and, more generally, photography as a means of expression.
Next month: Suzanne Revy!
