Sure, you have to master your camera’s technology, all those menus and buttons, but then what? Photography is about so much more than shutter speeds and sensor sizes. It’s about gesture and light, about your eye and your thought process, your ideas and your insight. But how do you hone that eye? How do you stay inspired to keep making pictures? Where does the urge to keep creating self-assignments come from? How do you utilize the great technology available to us to fully express yourself and keep it fresh? Come hear the always enlightening and ever curious Mel DiGiacomo as he touches on these questions (and more), and helps you to see your own work, and the work of others, in new ways. In a career spanning four decades he has never lost his love of photography nor his need to chase great pictures. Where does this wellspring come from?

The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history.

Lecture |
This talk maps the intersections of politics, psychoanalysis, and psychiatry in France in the aftermath of May ’68. For many thinkers during these years, Marxism could offer a theory of alienation to explain why the protesters had taken to the streets, but it was unable to account for why the revolution was systematically aborted.  Why were libidinal politics consistently repressed by the “fascism in our heads,” “the fascism that causes us to love power, to desire the thing that dominates and exploits us,” to quote Michel Foucault? In this context, several of these thinkers – including Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari – turned to psychiatry in the hope of finding a new theory of the subject that could embrace and reclaim these libidinal politics.  This talk revisits this history and explores the possibilities behind a politics of the psyche.  Speaker Camille Robcis is an Associate Professor of History at Cornell University and the author of The Law of Kinship: Anthropology, Psychoanalysis, and the Family in Twentieth-Century France.

Discussion |
In August 1955, a fourteen-year-old black boy visiting Mississippi from Chicago named Emmett Till was abducted from his family’s home in the middle of the night by white men who believed that Till had harassed one of their wives; he was beaten, murdered, and dumped in a river with a cotton-gin fan tied to his neck by barbed wire. The atrocity, which persisted during the trial of his killers and their acquittal by an all-white jury, rattled a nation and helped fuel the modern civil rights movement. Two groundbreaking accounts of the lynching that changed a generation re-examine the life, death, and legacy of Emmett Till. Historian Timothy Tyson and PEN Award–winning author John Edgar Wideman will speak about their new books, The Blood of Emmett Till and Writing to Save a Life, with historian Nell Irvin Painter, author of the New York Times bestseller The History of White People.Timothy Tyson’s The Blood of Emmett Till records one of the most comprehensive accounts of Emmett Till’s story, using for the first time trial transcripts that had gone missing for a half century and a revelatory interview with Carolyn Bryant, the woman Till had supposedly harassed, near the end of her life. John Edgar Wideman’s Writing to Save a Life plumbs the story through Louis Till, Emmett’s father, who was hung for rape and murder by the U.S. Army in Italy a decade before his son’s death.
