The Joynes Reading Room will host a panel titled "Visions of Family" featuring three prominent art photographers:
Dona Schwartz is an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. Her photography explores everyday life and culture. Her most recent book, In the Kitchen, was published by Jehrer Verlag in 2009. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Musee de l’Elysee, the George Eastman House and the Harry Ransom Center.
Julie Blackmon’s book Domestic Vacations explores what she calls “the conflation of art and life” with images that are “both fictional and autobiographical.” Inspired by 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, Blackmon’s colorful images of chaotic everyday life include an element of fantasy. Her work has been widely exhibited, and she has been selected by American Photo as an “Emerging Photographer of 2008” and one of PDN’s prestigious “30.”
Cori Pepelnjak’s ongoing project JoJo exemplifies her bold and compassionate approach to documentary photography. Her work has been exhibited recently at the Rayko Gallery of San Francisco, the Art of Photography Show in San Diego, Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle, and IFP in St. Paul, Minnesota.
