As part of its continuting Perspectives on Photography lecture series, the gallery is excited to  host a hybrid in-person, on-line talk presented by Jeffery A. Wolin with commentary by David Travis and Christopher Schneberger.

Beginning with his first job as a police photographer and then throughout his career, photographer Jeffrey A. Wolin has turned his camera towards capturing how the effects of war, poverty, and trauma have impacted the drama of human existence. And even within the tragedies inherent in these experiences, he has been able to capture the light of the individual’s spirit. By combining words within images, Wolin creates a world that acts as an homage to the people he has portrayed.

After the lecture, Wolin will be signing copies of his recent book, Measuring Time, published by Kehrer Verlag, and created to accompany a retrospective of his work at the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University.
