In this fun and information filled presentation, Dan Burkholder will chart his personal journey through four decades of photography while graphically illustrating the medium’s intrinsic links between technology, hardware, software and creativity. Always known for his irreverence and humor (yet never taking himself too seriously), you’ll leave this event with a new awareness of how photography began, where it is now, and where it might be when digital imaging itself is as outdated as the Speed Graphic camera.
From iPhone to Eye-Fi connectivity, Dan will take you on a journey that unites process with aesthetics. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn and laugh with Dan Burkholder.
