Capture Photography Festival Speaker Series

Tues April 25 @5 pm

Art historian and critic Shep Steiner suggests that we need to re-evaluate popular understandings of Roland Barthes’s influential and much-quoted text Camera Lucida. He posits Barthes’s book has largely escaped capture by its best and closest interpreters because they have not fully comprehended the problem that photography poses for memory.

Free but RSVP required. Please RSVP here. Doors: 5 pm/Talk: 6 pm
