Jock Sturges: Image Presentation and Artist Lecture
Thursday, March 8, 7 PM
Richland College is pleased to present renowned photographer Jock Sturges at 7 p.m. on March 8 in the Fannin Performance Hall (f102).
Richland College continues its commitment to excellence in photography by bringing world-class photographers to campus to interact with students over the course of a day concluding with a free public lecture, reception and book-signing. Past participants in this distinguished series include Ralph Gibson, Mary Ellen Mark, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, Joyce Tenneson, Keith Carter, and Arno Minkkinen. Sturges, known for his sublime photographs of the female nude, will address ideas of beauty and biography in art. This presentation will contain images that may not be suitable for younger or more sensitive audiences.
Sturges’ talk at Richland College will draw on the wider cultural and academic context of his photography, grounding his work in the history of art, while delving into his interests in perceptual psychology and anthropology. For Sturges, it is important to understand, “how vital it is for aspiring artists in any medium to be well and broadly educated in art history specifically and in all culture more generally.”
Sturges, a highly published and exhibited photographer, received his BFA from Marlboro College in 1974 and his MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1985. Currently he is working as a fine art photographer in California, Washington state, Ireland, The Netherlands, and the Atlantic coast of France. He is also a commercial freelance photographer specializing in fashion and classical dance and a contributing editor to various photography magazines. Locally, he had a solo exhibition at Photographs Do Not Bend in Dallas in 2001. His most recent monograph, Notes, as well his earlier acclaimed books, The Last Days of Summer and Radiant Identities, will be available for sale at the book signing.

presented by Richland College Photographic and Imaging Department
Richland College is proud to present renowned photographer Ralph Gibson at 7 p.m., Thurs., March 10 in the Fannin Performance Hall at Richland College. Richland continues its commitment to excellence in photography by bringing world-class photographers to campus to interact with students over the course of a day concluding with a free public lecture, reception and book-signing. Past participants in this distinguished series include Mary Ellen Mark, Jerry Uelsmann & Maggie Taylor, Joyce Tenneson, Keith Carter, and Arno Minkkinen.
Ralph Gibson studied photography while in the U.S. Navy and then at the San Francisco Art Institute. He began his professional career as an assistant to Dorothea Lange and went on to work with Robert Frank on two films. Gibson has maintained a lifelong fascination with books and book-making. Since the appearance of “The Somnambulist” in 1970, his work has been steadily impelled towards the printed page. To date, he has produced over 40 monographs, his most current projects being “State of the Axe” to be published by Yale University Press in Fall of 2008 and “Nude” by Taschen, 2009. His photographs are included in over 150 museum collections around the world, including the Dallas Museum of Art and the Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University and have appeared in hundreds of exhibitions.
Gibson’s awards include fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the Leica Medal of Excellence and the Silver Plumb Award from the Landmarks Preservation Committee. He is a Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France, and holds honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Maryland and Ohio Wesleyan University. In 2007, he received The Lucie Award for Fine Art Photography. He has worked exclusively with the Leica for almost 50 years.
As Gibson explains, “I have been a photographer all my life….and have made photographs of many things and for many reasons. But one thing that becomes more and more apparent is that I am simply only as good as my next photograph. That’s the one that counts the most….For this reason, I find it a delight to face a new day, and to develop that new roll of film. It’s a great way to live.”

Lecture and Book Signing
Richland College presents a lecture and presentation by photographers Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, husband and wife artists. The event is sponsored by the Richland College Photography Presentation Series, the Office of Student Life, and the Humanities, Fine and Performing Arts Division.
Jerry Uelsmann received his B.F.A. degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1957 and his M.S. and M.F.A. at Indiana University in 1960. He began teaching photography at the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1960. He became a graduate research professor of art at the university in 1974 and is now retired from teaching. Uelsmann received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967 and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1972. He is a Fellow at the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, a founding member of The Society of Photographic Education and a former trustee of the Friends of Photography. Uelsmann’s work has been exhibited in more that 100 individual shows in the United States and abroad over the past 40 years.
Maggie Taylor graduated from Yale University in 1983 with a B.A. degree in philosophy. In 1987 she received an MFA in photography from the University of Florida. After 10 years of creating vibrant color still-life images with a view camera, Taylor began to work with the computer in 1996. By placing objects directly on the glass top of the scanner, she is able to create a unique type of digital image that has some photographic qualities. Many of the images feature portions of her drawings, as well as found objects and bits of old tintype photographs. Taylor’s still-life photographs and digital images have been exhibited in more that 80 one-person exhibitions throughout the U.S. and in Europe. In 1996 and 2001 she received one-year State of Florida Individual Artist’s Fellowships.
