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.
The Intersections in Photography series features influential photographers presenting their work and addressing a related theme. The theme of our fourth forum is “Visions of Family.” The Intersections in Photography series is hosted by the Joynes Reading Room on the UT campus and supported by the Mary Lu Joynes Endowment in the Plan II Honors Program and the L.L. and Ethel E. Dean Endowment in the School of Undergraduate Studies.
The Joynes Reading Room is located in the Carothers Building at 2501 Whitis Ave. on the UT campus. Enter on the East (courtyard) side of the building. Contact (512) 471-5787 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
