Tuesday, Oct 22: Program Night - Gregory Gregor will speak with us on Photography: Authorship, Ownership, & Privacy
Through examining the methods and techniques of historical as well as contemporary photographers, we will take a look at how we create images as modern photographers; what it means to be a creator, an author, or an owner of said images. Does the creative effort alone make us the author and in being the author are we then the owner as well? What does ownership of an image mean to us as creators, and how does distribution and legacy play a role in that, or does it? Can we even claim ownership of our own visage?
