Discussion in 'Leica and Rangefinders' started by luke_dunlap, Feb 21, 2002.

  1. To those of you in or near Austin, Texas:

    <p>

    The 2002 Distinguished Lecturer Series of the Visual
    Communications Program of the School of Journalism at the
    University of Texas at Austin will open tonight with Lucian
    Perkins at 7pm in the CMA Auditorium. Admission is free.

    <p>

    Perkins has been a staff photographer for the Washington Post
    for 22 years and has received two Pullitzer Prizes.

    <p>

    Other lecturers include Dan Budnick on March 7, Danny Turner
    on March 21, Raymond Meeks on April 11, and Deborah Luster
    on April 25.

    <p>

    The real star of the series is David Duncan Douglas, whose
    archive now resides at UT's Harry Ransom Center. He will
    inaugurate the HRC's Photojournalism Lectureship on April 9 at
    7 pm in the Bass Auditorium.

    <p>

    It's free! so mark this one on your calendars and make the drive
    (or flight) to Austin. It will be well worth it, and while you're here
    you can check out the world-class photography collection (fifth
    largest archive in the world) at the Ransom Center. Although the
    HRC building is currently under renovation, there is a great
    exhibit underway at the LBJ Library on campus. It includes the
    world's first-known photograph.

    any questions about this event or about our photography
    collection in general.

    Hope to see you here!
