The NSU Art Museum Docent Speakers Bureau will present Through the Lens on Monday Dec. 19 at 10:30 a.m. in the John Knox Village Auditorium.  This talk will explore how the art of photography has evolved from earliest photographers like Eugene Atget, to the landscapes of Ansel Adams, the portraits of Richard Avedon and Annie Leibowitz and then focus on the identity-shaping work of Cindy Sherman and Zanhele Muholi. It will look at how composition and engagement make photos “work” as documentary, and as art that helps us reflect on the world around us.

The speaker is Marion Field Fass. She is retired from Beloit College where she was Professor of Biology and Interdisciplinary Studies. She always imagined “growing up” to be a photographer.  Armed with her iPhone camera, she is still trying to reach that goal.  Marion has been a docent at the NSU Museum of Art since 2109 and loves to talk about how connections between artists shape their work.
