This Wednesday, March 7th at 7 p.m., photographer and VCS instructor Richard Rothman will give a lecture at the International Center of Photography in New York City, as part of ICP’s ongoing Photographers Lecture Series. During his talk, Richard will discuss the making of his photo series and book Redwood Saw. (If you’re a student in the VCS program and would like to attend, feel free to contact Richard and let him know, so that he can put you on the guest list.)
Redwood Saw has received a lot of great press over the last few months; currently, an image from the series is on the cover of the seventh issue of Landscape Stories, which was published just yesterday. The issue also features a portfolio of images from Redwood Saw, along with a short statement from Richard that explains their creation and the story they tell.
You can find other recent press about Redwood Saw via the e-vite for Wednesday’s lecture, which includes links to PDF files of magazine articles about Redwood Saw, mentions in several lists of notable books from 2011, and a few blog features.
Finally, you can read a little more about Redwood Saw and see a couple more images in these earlier VCS blog posts:
