Newman Master Lecture Series: Sam Abell & Arthur Meyerson
July 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us to hear world renowned photographers Sam Abell and Arthur Meyerson speak about their photography and careers.
Sam Abell is one of the most experienced and accomplished teachers and photographers in the field today. From 1970 to 2005, Sam worked for National Geographic as a contract and staff photographer and as a Photographer in Residence. In 1990, his work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York. Accompanying the exhibit was a mid-career retrospective monograph titled, Stay This Moment. Since then he has published three collections of his work: Seeing Gardens, Sam Abell: The Photographic Life, and, most recently, The Life of a Photograph. In addition, Sam maintains a career as a writer, teacher, and lecturer on photography.
Arthur Meyerson is an award-winning photographer and a highly sought after workshop instructor. Arthur travels throughout the world photographing for advertising, corporate, and editorial clients. A three-time winner of Adweek’s “Southwest Photographer of the Year” award, he is on Communication World’s list of top 10 corporate photographers, and was named one of the 30 best advertising photographers by American Photo. Arthur is also a member of Nikon’s exclusive “Legends Behind the Lens.”
His photographs are exhibited internationally and appear in such periodicals as Communication Arts, Rangefinder, and Graphis. Arthur’s critically acclaimed book, “The Color of Light” was published in 2012.
This is his 8th year teaching for Maine Media Workshops.
