We are delighted to have Jeff back again for another amazing talk on the History of Photography. Here is info on the next event, Nov 10th at 10:30am on the stage:
Pictorialism & Straight Photography
Early 20th century art photography develops under the influence of painting. Practitioners create handmade, subjective images in an effort to advance photography as a legitimate art form. By World War 1 all of this changes with the emergence of photography’s first modern voice. Join photographer and art historian Jeffrey Martz as he introduces photographic revolutionaries like Alfred Stieglitz, Gertrude Käsebier, Paul Strand, Charles Sheeler and others in an open forum and presentation featuring accurate, high-definition reproductions.
Presenter Bio: A seasoned traveler and fine art photographer, Jeffrey Martz earned his MFA in Photography from Utah State University in 1997. He has taught photography, book-binding, and art history for over 20 years and currently teaches at Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo, CA.
