THE EVOLUTION OF PHOTOGRAPHY
What is a daguerreotype? Who is Matthew Brady? Steve Jobs? And what does he have to do with photography?! Photographs are a direct link to our history. From the development process, to the context of iconic photos, there is so much to discover. Learn about the different forms and the evolution of this process throughout the years with the lecture, “The Evolution of Photography” by Chris Karfakis.
Born in Philadelphia, Chris developed his love for photography as a young child. A longtime resident of Easton, he attended Temple University as a chemistry major later serving in the US Navy. He ran his family business, eventually opening up his own natural food store. Throughout it all, he continued to pursue his love of photography, focusing on early photographic practices. He began collecting cameras and images, eventually realizing that all of his knowledge and experience could be used to create a lecture series. PPC will benefit from Chris’ passion and knowledge at our May meeting. Join us on May 15th from 7 to 9 pm in the Keystone Building of Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus, 2411 Rt. 715, Tannersville, Pa. 18372. Curtain Raiser by Janice Giannolla.
