Lecture Description:

How a modernist photographer went from making exhibition prints to creating one-of-a-kind digitally printed books joining text and image where the text may or may not have any relationship to the accompanying photographs.

Artist Bio:

In 1970, John Eide created the first photography program leading to a BFA degree in the state at the now Maine College of Art, retiring in 2008, 38 years later.

His work is in a number of public and private collections, he's exhibited his photos from Portland (Ore.) to Portland (Me.), and has talked about his work from Prague to Phoenix.
