MPS Digital Photography and BFA Photography and Video present a screening of photographer Harvey Wang’s new film From Darkroom to Daylight, which explores how the dramatic shift from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. The film features interviews with photographers David Goldblatt, Jerome Liebling, Sally Mann, Eugene Richards and George Tice, as well as innovators Thomas Knoll, who co-created Photoshop, and Steven Sasson, who built the first digital camera while at Kodak. Wang will answer questions and sign copies of his companion book following the screening.
The screening will be preceded by Sid Kaplan: The Photographer’s Photographer, Harvey Wang’s short film profiling the longtime BFA Photography and Video faculty member, photographer and master printer, who has famously printed work for Cornell Capa, Louis Faurer, Robert Frank, Allen Ginsberg, Philippe Halsman, Duane Michals, W. Eugene Smith and Weegee.
