Photographer David Goldes will present a great slide show lecture about his work on Friday evening, February 13, at 7:30. The lecture takes place at the San Francisco Art Institute. Get there early before it sells out.
Goldes is one of those intellectual thinkers who explores (and understands) lots of things in our world, and chooses photography to express the joy and wonder of it all. He received a B.A. in Chemistry and Biology from SUNY at Buffalo, a MA from Harvard in Molecular Genetics and a M.F.A. from the Visual Studies Workshop in Photography. Since 1986 David Goldes has been a Professor in the Media Arts Department at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
The evening at PhotoAlliance (which opens with a slideshow lecture by Mary Parisi) is described this way: “Through photography, the work seeks to approach simple physical phenomena within the shifting demands of perception, memory and the desire for understanding.”
For more details, see the PhotoAlliance website (always interesting), and Goldes‘ own website.
