Visiting Artist Lecture - Quinn Jacobson

Photographer Quinn Jacobson will give a public presentation of his work on Feb. 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the Visual Arts Complex 1B20.

Jacobson specializes in historic photographic processes such as the wet collodion process, daguerreotype and calotype. His work often is centered on "otherness", or people and places on the fringe of society. Quinn calls this his tripod of concepts: memory, identity and difference. He's probably best known for his part in the revival of the Wet Plate Collodion process in Europe.
