Digital Imaging Expert Lectures at WCC April 13

WCC will welcome digital imaging expert Dan Burkholder to campus on Friday, April 13. His two-hour lecture, which will begin at 7:00pm in Towsley Auditorium, is free and open to the public.

Burkholder will share his personal journey through four decades of photography and illustrate graphically the melding of technology, hardware, software, and creativity.

He was one of the first photographic artists to embrace digital technology in the early 1990s. Burkholder has helped open doors for black and white photographers interested in moving into the new electronic technologies. His 1999 award-winning book, “Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing,” has been regarded as the most authoritative work in the field.

Today, many photography professionals and digital artists are familiar with Burkholder’s ethereal images using an assortment of inexpensive iPhone imaging apps. He has taught classes and workshops at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the lnternational Center of Photography in New York, the University of Texas at San Antonio, the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, and other places.

For more information, contact Don Werthmann.
