Frontiers of Photography with Jessie Parker

Jessie will discuss her development as an artist.  She will review types of photo-based imagery which have influenced her evolution to photo-based art today and her continued exploration of this genre.   The second part of her presentation will be about how “Lightscapes” were invented and how she's incorporated them into her art techniques: imagery that consists entirely of light, what the camera can see but the eye cannot. This will be illustrated with examples of her work.
