"Memory Orchards: Photographers Photographing their Families"

Gordon Stettinius (L)

Thursday, March 09 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Orange EF

This presentation will feature photographers’ depictions of their own families, by comparing two major book projects: “Flesh and Blood,” published by the Picture Project in 1992, and “Memory Orchards,” edited by Stettinius (and to be published by Candela Books in 2017). Both of these books are broad surveys of 50-plus contemporary photographers that set up an interesting discussion on what family looked like through contemporary photography in 1992 versus the perspective presented by photographers and artists 25 years later. Photographers from the original work also will be revisited in the newer book. They include Sally Mann, Anthony Barboza, and others.
