HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY
VISIONARIES SERIES 2012-2013
Most of us own some kind of camera, even if only on our cell phones, but photography is a new phenomenon. The history of photography is full of colorful characters and dramatic events. For the coming year, the Visionaries will present a history of images---photographs---that have shaped and defined our world.
Our featured lecturer is Jeanne Willette,Ph.D., an Associate Professor of Art History at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. As an exceptional art historian, she has written for numerous publications including Art Scene, Art Week and Visions Art Weekly as well as exhibition catalogues for museum shows. She is the author and publisher of two websites, Art History Unstuffed and The Arts Blogger. In addition to her impressive scholarly and professional background, Dr. Willette is a gifted speaker who brings wit and charm to our enrichment series.
