Dallas Center for Photography and Texas Photographic Society are delighted to present an evening of inspiring lectures by two incredibly talented artists married with cameras: Susan kae Grant and Richard Klein.
Susan will discuss her creative process and show examples of “Night Journey” which represents a collaboration of artistic and scientific inquiry into the nature of dreams and memory. Her fascination with accessing otherwise unobtainable states of consciousness led her to work with sleep researcher Dr. John Herman in a laboratory to conduct REM sleep awakenings as inspiration to create her work. Grant’s images conjure up fairy tales and nightmares while deliberately portraying a sense of surprise and wonder.
Richard will share his insights as a location photographer specializing in creating beautiful images of hospitality. Known as a master of cinematic lighting, he will show examples of 25 years shooting internationally on the Pacific Rim from Tokyo to New Zealand as well as in Africa, the UK, Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Klein’s goal when shooting is to interpret what it feels like to be in the space using light and composition to create the illusion of 3D depth into the 2D picture plane.
The evening will conclude with a panel discussion moderated by Texas Photographic Society Executive Director Amy Holmes George addressing the intersections between their photographic work and also their relationship as artists/spouses.
When: Thursday, Sept 29 from 7-9pm
Where: Dallas Center for Photography, 4756 Algiers St, Dallas 75207
