STORYTELLERS LECTURE SERIES
Jessica Eve Rattner & Andrew Burton
Tuesday, December 6, 2016
6 - 8 PM
SF Camerawork Member Ticket Price: $5
General Ticket Price: $10
Judy Walgren (Pulitzer Prize winning photographer and editorial director for ViewFind), SF Camerawork, and PhotoArts Marin have teamed up to invite cutting-edge photographers from across the country to talk about their work and approach to visual storytelling.
Storytelling is a word that has become increasingly popular in the field of photography. The "Story" embedded in a photograph or group of photographs creates the understanding and connection between audience and photograph - no matter which branch of the field the photographer employs. Photojournalism has been the cornerstone for this narrative approach to image-making, but as photographic genres continue to blur, the Storyteller's skill is increasingly important to all photographers.
This is the fifth night in this series of lectures and will feature the work of photographers Jessica Eve Rattner and Andrew Burton.
Jessica Eve Rattner received her BA from Amherst College and an MSW from the Smith School for Social Work. She worked as a writer, editor, and clinical social worker before turning to photography at age forty. She is the 2016 recipient of the Duke Center for Documentary Studies Essay Prize. Her photography has also received recognition from Critical Mass Top 50 and LensCulture Emerging Talent Juror's Pick. A solo show of her work is scheduled for next year at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Andrew Burton is a Pulitzer Prize finalist, documentary photographer based in San Francisco. He is currently a fellow at the University of California, Berkeley's Investigative Reporting Program where he is working on a documentary film up in Alaska. Prior to this, Burton worked as a staff photographer for Getty iMages covering news on a national and international level.
