Robert C. May Photography Lecture Series: Lynsey Addario

Date: 
Friday, October 9, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

As a photojournalist, Lynsey Addario has chosen a profession that leads her directly into the midst war zones and humanitarian crises around the world, including Afghanistan, the Congo, Darfur, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, South Sudan, and Syria. She has been kidnapped twice: once for a day in Fallujah; another time she was held for a week in Libya. Both times she thought she would be killed. “I believe in these stories; I believe they have to be told. And so I force myself to go to these places. It's not an adrenaline rush and it's not an addiction,” Addario says.

Take a break from your day and join us virtually to look at and discuss artwork over the lunch hour. Eat/Art is the UK Art Museum's series of mealtime dialogues about art from our collection and exhibitions. 

This week we will be looking at prints from Juan Genoves' El Lugar y el Tiempo (The Time and the Place) series. Originally created in the final years of Franco's regime in Spain, these stark silhouettes of figures and crowds depict unrest and protest to stirring effect.

Take a break from your day and join us virtually to look at and discuss artwork over the lunch hour. Eat/Art is the UK Art Museum's series of mealtime dialogues about art from our collection and exhibitions. 

This week we will be looking at two photographs: Gordon Parks' Untitled, Harlem, New York and Indianapolis by Robert Frank. Both are black and white images meant to evoke a feeling from their respective cities. We will find common threads between the pieces and discuss how the artists' techniques relate and differ in capturing their subjects.
