Photographer Will Discuss Camera-less Technique Oct. 27 & 28
For release: October 24, 2000
For more information, contact Gabrielle Maxey

A photographer who produces images of flowers and plant life without a camera will visit The University of Memphis this week as part of the Photographic Society's 2000-2001 lecture series.

Amanda Means will present a lecture and slide show of her work Friday at 7 p.m. in the psychology auditorium. Saturday she will lead a workshop at 10 a.m. in the Meeman Journalism Building, Room 120.

Means' technique is to place a flower or plant form in the enlarger and project it onto photographic paper. Stripped of color and greatly enlarged, this process gives an intense quality of radiance to the black and white imagery.

Means' photographs have been exhibited in solo and group shows at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the International Center of Photography, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and the Lake Placid Center for the Arts in New York. Her work is also featured in the collections of the Aaron Siskind Estate, the Whitehead Collection of Art in Boston, and the Avon Collection of Women Photographers.

The lecture and workshop are free and open to the public. For more information, call 901-678-2925.
