Mindful Documentary Photography and Filmmaking
Wednesday October 2, 2019  7pm - 9pm (2 Hours )
Lecture / Seminar Meeting / Club Workshop / Class Wheelchair Accessible


Event in Room: 106

In this month's Kings County Photography Club meeting, our featured speaker is photojournalist and documentary filmmaker Nance Ackerman.

Nance’s talk is titled “Mindful Documentary Photography and Filmmaking”. Her outlook on photography and filmmaking might be a bit different than expected. She often leaves her camera behind and concentrates on the art of seeing, the experience of the moment and the beauty in the day today. Ackerman will explore Mindful Photography techniques and experiences through her work on assignment all over the world – in war-torn Beirut, the Witch Camps in West Africa, Northern Afghanistan and even rural Nova Scotia. She chronicles her documentary work and her latest project, Conviction a collaboration with two other filmmakers and women inside prison. Her casual storytelling approach makes for an educational, entertaining and enlightening look at our obsession with documentation, the loss of 'experiential moments and need for mindfulness. "In photography, mindfulness is looking at something, and truly seeing, feeling and experiencing it. Even though it may be something you have looked at a thousand times before.”

We'll also review some recent work from our club members.

The public is welcome to attend. If you enjoy the club, we encourage you to consider becoming a member.
