Tim Davis Speaking to Hampshire College

by

Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.

Tim Davis studied at Bard College and Yale University and currently teaches photography at Bard College. His recently received the prestigious Rome Prize in 2007. This lecture will give you an interesting glimpse into modern art photography. While the approach of a landscape photographer, National Geographic photographer or photojournalist might be pretty obvious, art photography is an entirely different beast. I have a college degree in photojournalism and never encountered anything like Tim Davis' work during school.

This lecture allows you to see an artist speaking to other potential artists. The vocabulary of the discussion as well as the subject matter of the images offers an extremely interesting look into this branch of our craft.

Warning: This video contains a few words and a few images that may be inappropriate for children.
