The Pratt Photography Lectures inaugurates its 2014-2015 season with an evening focusing on the life and work of photographer Garry Winogrand. Curator John Szarkowski famously called Winogrand “the central photographer of his generation.” The event at Pratt Institute coincides with a major retrospective, Garry Winogrand, on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art through September 21.
The evening will feature a keynote lecture by photographer and essayist Leo Rubinfien, entitled “The Reasons for Winogrand.” Rubinfien, the curator of Garry Winogrand, and the editor of the exhibition catalogue, is former protégé of Winogrand’s. His lecture will be followed by responses from and, a conversation with, three individuals who knew Winogrand during his lifetime: Jeff L. Rosenheim, Curator in Charge of the Department of Photography at The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Susan Kismaric, former curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art; and Thomas Roma, photographer and Director of Photography at Columbia University. Photography Chair Stephen Hilger, will moderate the conversation, which will include a Q & A session with the audience. The run-time of the program is approximately 120 minutes. This event is co-sponsored by the Pratt Photo League.
Free and open to the Pratt community and to the public. Registration is required for this event. Please register here by September 8.
