Jeffrey Opp: "The Photographic Book as an Instrument for Change"

Saturday, March 09 - 10:50AM to 11:10AM
Honore Ballroom

Opp's work utilizes the strategy of fusing images and text into books to probe, question, and alter the economic system of which we are all a part. He will talk about how text can sabotage an easy reading of photographs while photos in turn can prevent a cursory reading of the text. This disconnect in Opp's work allows the viewer to reevaluate their role as a participant in a global system. He aims for a work of creative non-fiction that allows room for the audience's insights and experiences to drive them to action.
