Video Presentation: From Darkroom to Daylight
Saturday, April 18th, 1:45 - 2:45 PM
AIPAD, Park Avenue Armory, Board and Officers Room
From Darkroom to Daylight explores how the dramatic change from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. Photographer Harvey Wang, who began taking pictures as a teenager, was mid-career when the tools of his craft were made nearly obsolete with the transition to digital. Wang interviewed more than 20 important photographers and prominent figures in the field, including Jerome Liebling, George Tice, David Goldblatt, Sally Mann, Eugene Richards, Ruud van Empel, John Cohen and Jeff Jacobson, as well as Steven Sasson, who built the first digital camera while at Kodak and Thomas Knoll, co-creator of Photoshop. Wang’s book of the same name will be available from Daylight Books in spring 2015.
