Description

Minneapolis Institute of Arts Photography and Video curator David Little will give a talk titled Unnatural Representations: Photography and Nature.

One popular story of photography and nature begins, rather oddly, with a pencil, William Henry Fox Talbot’s Pencil of Nature, the first commercially published book to use photographs as illustrations. The story only gets more strange and complicated as photographers attempt to use the medium to represent the complexity of nature. This lecture will discuss a selection of key encounters between photography and nature through the works of Anna Atkins, Fox Talbot, Ansel Adams, Trevor Paglen, Thomas Ruff, and Rinko Kawauchi, among others.
