Lecture: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm - 8:30pm
Dan Winters' sparkling 35-year career in photography has led to iconic photographs of some the world's most prominent people. But to call him a "celebrity photographer" wouldn't just miss the mark, it would ignore the breadth of his photographic projects and fascinations; from electron microscopes to drawing and collage. Winters' goal, to make the right image, whether the subject is the Space Shuttle or Brad Pitt, has been life-long -- which speaks to the seduction (and elusiveness) of making the perfect photograph.
Dan will discuss his work and the way in which his internal dialogue informs and shapes the way in which he approaches his photography. Dan's talk will stress thought and perception, and will act as a compendium to his 5th and most recent book, “Road to Seeing”, published in 2014 by New Riders. Dan will field questions afterwards.
Dan Winters is an American photojournalist who splits his time between Austin, LOS Angeles and Savannah. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a World Press Photo Award in 2003 and an Alfred Eisenstaedt award for magazine photography in 1998. Dan works regularly for the New Yorker, Wired, the New York Times Magazine, GQ, New York Magazine, Vanity Fair, TIME, Newsweek, HBO, Nike, Samsung and numerous other editorial and commercial clients. His work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world.
