Public Lecture: Andrea Robbins and Max Becher

Public Lecture
Date: Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Internationally recognized artists Andrea Robbins and Max Becher delivered a public lecture on their photography and research. Rather than “capturing” the visual essence of a sitter, Robbins and Becher are well known for seeking to reveal identity to be multifarious, transitive, and culturally and historically bound. They capture their subjects in ways that transform, enhance, and accentuate social and cultural meaning. They do so with the full complicity and respect of the people they photograph. They spend weeks living with each community they document. They immerse themselves in the stories of its citizens and history. They interview its residents and participate in their rituals and customs. They photograph them in various, active stages of work, play, and home life.
