Workshop:
Darkroom to Digital

(Ages 14 and up)

Instructor: Roylee Duvall

This is a basic class presenting traditional film-based photography compared with the digital world. Students will shoot and develop one or more rolls of film, make a proof sheet and work prints.

The student is encouraged to make similar photographs with their digital camera to compare behavior and quality of the two different, but closely related approaches to photography. Finally, scans will be made of one or more negatives and prints made from the scans and the digital originals. If you don’t have a film camera one can be loaned for assignments. A materials cost of $10 is due to the instructor at the first class meeting for film and paper.

October 10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Keynote:
Portraiture As Political Struggle with Titus Brooks Heagins


East Building; SECU Auditorium or Zoom Webinar

The social uses of photography, especially portrait photography, have become commonplace, making it easy to miss the powerful significance that can be achieved by photographing people who are typically left out of story. The work of Titus Brooks Heagins continues to profess the importance of the portrait as not simply a product of brief encounters between himself, his cameras, and various sitters, but as instances of truth. They are visual samples of representation of lives lived that are often intentionally hidden within social, economic, and judicial structures. Bringing these stories of representation into public spaces is a key artistic motivator and will be one of the topics of discussion in the artist talk presented by Heagins. This event is free and open to the public.

October 17 @ 5pm

Keynote: Make Believe: Walking the Line Between Documentary and Fiction with Alex Harris


PSI Theatre – Durham Arts Council

In 2017, with a commission from the High Museum in Atlanta, Harris set out to immerse himself in the world of southern fiction filmmakers. Since that time, he has photographed a wide variety of 41 different films including historical, contemporary, horror, experimental, long and short form, low budget and multi-million-dollar productions.

“Photographing behind the scenes on fiction film sets across the south, I began to notice that it was difficult to see the difference between my pictures of actors in front of the filmmaker’s lens, of crew behind the scenes, and of people living in communities around the set. Preparing for this talk, I looked back at earlier, documentary and family photographs I’ve made over the years, and was struck by the ways many seem to predict my more recent movie set pictures…”

October 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Curator Talk:
From Fallujah


PS118 Gallery

Guest curator, photographer, 21 year Army veteran, and UNC-Chapel Hill American Studies PhD candidate, John Bechtold will talk about war in public memory and some of the curatorial choices which informed this visual project.

From Fallujah is a group photography exhibit featuring the work of four emerging Iraqi photographers. The exhibit proceeds from the idea that the best way to learn about a place is through the people who live there. Our purpose is to simply make another story about Fallujah visible to American audiences, one that departs from its militarized meaning in public memory. Fallujah is not an Iraq War battlefield. It is a place where people work, attend school, and frequent public spaces wanting what we all want, a chance to peaceably choose our lives.
