Join us for a talk with photographer, Sean Kernan, at The Rockport Opera House –– Monday, August 7th, 7:30PM.

Sean published his first poem when he was 16, and he decided that if it was that easy he’d just go ahead and be a writer. Then he somehow deflected into theater and photography. But he always maintained some kind of writing practice throughout.

In college he worked as a reporter for the New Haven Register and a bureau assistant for the New York Times. Later he produced a series of articles and interviews on photography and a number of columns on the problems of creativity in the workplace for Communication Arts Magazine.

He also became a pioneering teacher well known for investigating creativity in various disciplines, and based on this work he authored Looking Into the Light. At this point he is nearly finished with one novel, The Invisible Library, and nearly begun another, Old Age, Sickness, and Death: A Comedy. And he has written any number of forewords, afterwords and introductions.

He has published two monographs of photographs, The Secret Books (with Jorge Luis Borges) and Among Trees, (introduction by Anthony Doerr), and has just produced a film, Crow Stories, about life on the Crow Reservation.

He has taught and lectured at Parsons School of Design, Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Maine Media Workshops and Santa Fe Workshops, University of Texas, and Yale Medical School. He has exhibited internationally and won numerous awards, including Center’s 2010 Teacher of the Year and an honorary doctorate from Art Center College of Design.
