Description

Please join us for the next talk from SFAI's Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series:

Doug Rickard’s work evokes provocative connections to a strong tradition of American photography masters, with knowing references to Walker Evans, Robert Frank, and Stephen Shore. He both follows and dramatically advances that tradition, with a documentary strategy that acknowledges an increasingly technological world—a world in which a camera mounted on a car can produce moving evidence of the people and places it is leaving behind. Rickard’s discovery of Google Street View as a vehicle for making photography—a method explored in his recent body of work A New American Picture—was informed by his experimentation with re-photographing and arranging satellite images, amateur snapshots, and commercial and surveillance photographs.
This event is FREE and open to the public. But space is limited, and advance registration is recommended:
