World Renowned Landscape Photographer to Speak at Drexel

John Pfahl

May 17, 2007 — This is a rare opportunity to hear John Pfahl speak about his evolution as an artist and the transformation of his art in the digital age. Visual lecture with PowerPoint.

Since the 1970s, Pfahl's work has been collected and exhibited worldwide while he's enjoyed a growing national and international reputation as a landscape photographer. He is considered such an important photographer that he merited four pages in the recently published three-volume Encyclopedia of 20th Century Photography (Routledge). His art appears in numerous books; Art in America and many other national magazines have devoted feature articles to his work.

His new series Scrolls, recently on view in an exhibition at The Janet Borden Gallery in New York City, makes use of the computer to radically alter photographs that began as one kind of landscape and end up as another.
