DAM - Great Photography Lectures and Exhibitions Up

November 17:
Anderman Photography Lecture with Alison Rossiter
Anderman Photography Lecture Series |Alison Rossiter
Friday, November 17, 2017
7:00–8:30pm
Hamilton Building - Lower Level
Purchase tickets now or call 720-913-0130.

Alison Rossiter’s camera-less photographs emphasize the process and materiality of the photographic image in an increasingly digital age. She collects expired photo papers spanning every decade of the 20th century and explores the visual potential that remains in these often forgotten relics. Working with chemistry and the marks of time left on the paper itself, Rossiter creates minimalist compositions varying from atmospheric scenes that subtly evoke landscape, to images consisting of organic forms or geometric shapes.

Alison Rossiter was born in Jackson, MS in 1953 and currently lives and works in New Jersey. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of numerous major institutions. Rossiter’s recently published book, Expired Paper, has just been nominated for Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation photobook of the year.  
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Lecture tickets are $5 for students, DAM members and CPAC members, $12 for general admission.

The Anderman Photography Lecture Series presents talks by the preeminent creators and thinkers in photography today. Series funding is generously provided by Evan and Elizabeth Anderman. Sponsored by the DAM Photography Department.
