Film Series "Celebrate Photography"!

  • Leesburg Center for the Arts 429 West Magnolia Street Leesburg, FL, 34748 United States (map)

Leesburg asked for photography programs and this is hopefully just the beginning. We are kicking programming off with Mondays in May (National Photography Month) showing four Photographer Documentaries followed by time to share thoughts and idea. In addition, on May 14th the first meeting of the New LCFA Photography Club is included.

May 7 - An Art That Nature Makes - The Work of Artist Rosamond Purcell
Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed an oeuvre of work that has garnered international acclaim, graced the pages of National Geographic and over 20 published books, and has enlisted admirers such as Jonathan Safran Foer, Errol Morris and Stephen Jay Gould.

May 14 - Jan Groover: Tilting at Space (SHORT)
Jan Groover is widely recognized as one of the preeminent fine arts photographers. Her work has been compared to that of Morandi, Cezanne, and Weston.

May 21 - Bert Stern: Original Mad Man
is the definitive voyage into the life and work of one of the greatest American photographers of all time.
An original Madison Avenue "mad man," Stern's images helped create modern advertising; his ground-breaking campaign for Smirnoff forever changed the industry. The iconic photos he took of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine, Sophia Loren, Twiggy, and the infamous Lolita image from Kubrick's film, minted Stern - along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon - as a celebrity in his own right. Indeed, his photos from Monroe's "Last Sitting" are considered to be the ultimate images of the 20th century icon.

May 28 - Rock Photographer Jini Dellaccio: Her Aim Is True: 
Before Leibovitz, there was Jini... Her Aim Is True brings together musicians and rock photographers in an inspiring and unforgettable journey revealing unlikely rock 'n' roll photographer, Jini Dellaccio who visualized punk before it had a name and embodied indie before it was cool. In 1964, a middle-aged Dellaccio began hanging out with raucous garage bands in her backyard, creating innovative album covers.
