Guest artist, Jonathon Wells, will be giving a lecture in the Photo Lighting studio on on Thursday, February 23, starting at 5:45 (light refreshments first, and we’ll start at 6:00).
Jonathon Wells is a geologist who made a mid-career detour to become an artist (and now he has two careers). He makes photo-geologic composites that are part map, part photograph, part visualization of a world that’s normally inaccessible and wholly invisible. I find them fascinating in and of themselves, but they also serve as a starting point for an investigation into what’s happening in the world of energy extraction and fracking.
