This season’s salon-style conversation in the Alper Initiative will feature a conversation between curator Jane Livingston and Joe Cameron on the poetic compositions in his black and white photographs. Free and open to all interested in Washington art. Space is limited.

About: To talk about Joe Cameron’s art is to talk about several arts. Few photographers have ever been more interested in drawing and design, or more steeped in imagery whose analogues are poetic, musical and phenomenological. Despite the continuity and traditionalism of his professional life as a long-time Washington, DC resident and teacher at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, Cameron has ultimately found himself in a milieu whose boundaries were perhaps more than ordinarily porous in relation to “purity” of any medium. He has found a way to use the camera in service to a visual quest that balances the subjective and the objective in a singular balancing act.
