Debra Weiss, Creative Consultant, in Conversation with photographer Sara Terry

“Everyone’s A Photographer: The Cell Phone Camera – Revolution or De-Evolution?”

Creative Consultant Debra Weiss and photographer Sara Terry, an early implementer of the mobile phone, get together to discuss the iPhone camera and its impact on photography.  To some, it’s a new art form, to others it signals the death of photography. We’ll explore both sides of this picture in what promises to be a lively discussion.

Ken Light, Artist Talk- RSVP Here

“What’s Going On, America 1969-1974”

Ken Light’s monograph of his earliest photos from 1969 to 1974 document the social landscape of America as it roiled with upheaval. He began as a participant in the youth movement and then became an observer of the entire spectrum of the cultural and political wars in America. Light criss-crossed the country with youthful passion and a yearning to explain his country to himself, asking, “What’s going on?”

Ken Light, at Photobook Competition Table

“For another thick, juicy slice of the real, pick up Ken Light’s What’s Going On? 1969-1974 a collection of the photojournalist’s earliest work, documenting the riled-up politicized counterculture in which he came of age……His books- with endpapers that reproduce letters from his FBI surveillance files-starts out looking like a student radicals Joe Szabo’s Teenage and ends up with a sequence of furiously engaged reportage that recalls Danny Lyon and Larry Fink. “—- Vince Aletti– Photograph, January 2016

Alec Byrne, Photographer, in Conversation with Drew Evans, über Editions

London Rock, The Rediscovered Rock Photography of Alec Byrne, 1966-1976

If what they say is true and remembering the 60s means you weren’t really there, then photographer Alec Byrne is the exception that proves the rule.

Coming of age in swinging 60s London, Alec began shooting rock stars at the tender age of 16 as a stringer for Melody Maker and New Musical Express. Before long he had established his own agency, selling photos of music icons to magazines all over the world. Then, at 26 he decided to move on to the next chapter of his life here in California. His negatives went into storage for nearly 40 years, until 2012, when a handful were dusted off and printed for a one-night-only exhibition, Rock & Roll Time Capsule, at Smashbox Studios here in L.A. What was envisioned as a small show for the true-blue rock photography fan turned into a phenomenon attended by over 1,000 people.

Now in the editing process for London Rock (Insight Editions), a comprehensive retrospective of his decade in the trenches of the London music scene, Alec will be stopping by Photo Independent for a first-look slide show of images under consideration for the book, many of which will be seeing the light of day for the first time. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear first hand stories from the golden age of rock & roll from someone who lived it up close and personal.

To be followed by signing of the limited edition Rock & Roll Time Capsule catalog.
