Lois Conner is a New York-based photographer best known for her stunning panoramas of China taken over the course of more than two decades and printed in platinum. Typically working with a banquet camera, she describes the world as her studio and her subject, the landscape as culture. Conner is not interested in the untouched and untrammeled, but in revealing through photography a sense of history, and describing through her work the relationship to both the tangible and the imagined, to fact and fiction. The artist, who has taught at Yale, Princeton, and Bard, has also gone on to inspire a younger generation of photographers, and will show us prints from a wide range of series, including some of her most recent work.
This is a private event for Friends of Photography members.
