Lecture Series – The Informed Eye: Richard Zakia’s “Perception and Imaging”
January 22, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
By: George Schaub
Join us in the Palm Beach Photographic Centre’s Studio (2nd Floor)
The inspiration for this talk stems from Professor Richard Zakia’s seminal work, “Perception and Imaging.” Illustrating the lecture with his own images and Zakia’s words, Schaub will discuss how the book reveals the principles of human visual perception and ways in which they can be brought into play when making images. Mindfulness about content and composition and guiding the viewer’s eye is important, but carrying equal if not greater weight is an awareness of the potential spiritual and psychological power of an image. Zakia, one of the great photographic teachers of the 20th Century, explored these matters in his books, classes and workshops and can lead you, as they did Schaub, to new ways of seeing and creating engaging and personal imagery.
