If one were to title this lecture it might be called “Something Personal”.  The images are not “pretty”,  not “easy” and not for folks under the age of 18. It is Fischer’s own beautiful, story in photographs… about a death.

The powerful and haunting imagery of buildings & interiors, once magnificent structures in some of America’s wealthiest cities, now desolate relics, is the focus of Westerhout’s eye. The visual journey and fascinating anecdotes in gaining access to  photograph these structures make a riveting story.

“I see this imagery as a new aesthetic. The broken down elements in the picture, even the crummy resolution, heightens the atmosphere with a sense of menace, isolation, alienation & disrespect. Google Street Views allow the look of anonymity because these pictures were initially made by a “machine” with no discrimination whatsoever”.

Mar. 11th MATT HABER
“I have long been in awe of the extraordinary physical expressions that choreographers create and dancers execute. The dancers, models, and I, always create these images collaboratively”.  Haber who looks at the human body as a language, has been working in this genera for the past 14 years.
