Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit with Paul Kitagaki

In his book Paul documents and illuminates a dark episode in our country's history, the relocation and internment of more than 120,000 ethnic Japanese Americans during WWII. A national traveling exhibition appearing at the Smithsonian and in cities throughout the country, Kitagaki has spent the last 16 years locating the families who lived through the internment camps, documenting their stories of survival and inner strength to overcome injustice, racism, and wartime hysteria. Paul havs found the subjects in the Dorothy Lange photo of the Japanese internment During WWII and rephotographed them and told their story of survival . It is the first time many have spoken of their experiences. Many didnt know they were photographed by Dorothy Lange and Ansel Adams.

 Seminar 111

The Portrait: Who, What, Where, When and Why – A concise history with J. Tomas Lopez


©Tom Lopez

Tom Lopez uses a visual powerpoint presentation to discuss how photography was driven in the 19th century by our vanity. The portrait and the desire for images of self was a major motivator for its success and growth. Beginning with Nadar and Julia Margaret Cameron Lopez explains the celebrity vs the private portrait. Taking it into the 20th Century the portraiture of Steichen, Newman, Penn, Avedon and Leibovitz, as gods of the medium.

This leads to his own work from the AIDS portraits of the late 1980’s to the artists images of today.

The presentation entails a historical and theoretical trajectory of who gets to make photographs and who gets photographed.

 Seminar 112

Advanced Simplicity: Two Tool Photoshop with Vincent Versace


©Vincent Versace

“Make things as simple as possible and no simpler.” Albert Einstein

Frequently it seems people fear Photoshop more than they fear sharks. It’s scary because there is soooo much that it does and like a deer in the headlights we paralyze ourselves. The bottom line is it’s the artist that defines the final work not the tool that is used to shape it. With just two tools, an Adjustment layer and the brush tool. This class will explore how to use Photoshop in such a way even a cavemen could do it.
