June 21st, 2011 from 1-3pm, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
Beinecke Photographer Meredith Miller organized a talk given by fine art photographers Chris Capozziello, Muema, Terttu Uibopuu, and Yael Ben-Zion. They presented their work and discussed their workflows from digital capture to print with an emphasis on the ways in which their conventional film and darkroom experiences shaped their selection and utilization of digital cameras and digital darkroom equipment. A selection of their work was exhibited online from May 15 to July 31, 2011: http://photonow.sites.yale.edu/galleries/photographers-photographing-now
In conjunction with this event, a second online exhibition featured the creative and fully digital work of the following members of Yale Digital Coffee, David Driscoll, Patrick Lynch, Rob Rocke, William K. Sacco, and Jessica Smolinksi, and was viewed online from June 15 to July 31, 2011: http://photonow.sites.yale.edu/galleries/yale-photo-now
