Since photography's creation there has been a push and pull between photography as an artwork and photography as a documentary tool. With November's 3rd Thursday presentation we will be exploring the relationship between photography and how our memory has been influenced by the photographing process and the images. The presentation will explore how photographers use imagery to recall memory, how memories are changed through the photographic imaging process, and how has the subject matter of photography influenced memory.
Katharina Marchant is a photographer who recently moved to Madison. Due to her experiences growing up in the military her work centers around cultural identity.
