Focusing on process rather than product, the American photographer Ann Mandelbaum will share the work she produced during the last 30 years. The emphasis will be on the relationship among the ongoing series, all of which offer worlds not usually witnessed. In attempting to subvert reality, initially solarization and multiple exposure were employed in the darkroom. The work which followed, interfacing with Photoshop, manifests the huge shift that has taken place between the analogue and digital worlds.

The lecture will be held in English.
