Michael Putnam speaking Friday, 24 August 2007

Michael Putnam, whose May Gallery show also opens on Friday, will speak at 2:00 in the University Center Presentation Room. His talk will be particularly about how his photographic project about old movie theaters turned into the book, Silent Screens: The Decline and Transformation of the American Movie Theater. The book has been put on reserve in the Emerson Library.

Michael Putnam is a native New Yorker with a visual interest in the anthropology of everyday life and in the way the image of what has gone before visually inhabits the present. He has photographed notably in the towns and cities of the continental U. S. and along the Ganges, and has been part of a multi-media project photographing daily life in Tokyo, Moscow, London and New York.
