Online History of Photography Lecture
Brenton Hamilton
Hannah Höch: DaDA & Collage and Media
Tuesday, October 24th, 4:00 – 5:30pm Pacific time
$25   /  Limit 60

Join Brenton Hamilton in the new set of CfPA history lectures – starting off this season with the innovator between the world wars – Hannah Hoch.

Hoch’s work is prescient  and mirrors our own fractured times. An important provocateur – Hoch used media, photography, and collage in brave and innovative ways. Hamilton will shape a context for you and show this interesting work framed by the times and the politics of the period.
A radical approach using media and society to protest and acknowledge the world order of the 1920’s in Europe. Not to be missed!

Brenton Hamilton is a working artist using photography, especially devoted to the use of 19th century photography methods in experimental ways. He has devoted his career to the history and practice of cyanotype, gum bichromate and platinum as base materials for his stories and images within his personal work, which is frequently embellished with gold and silver and paint.

In addition to his practice, Hamilton was an educator at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine and taught these materials and methodologies for nearly 30 years to thousands of students. He has an MFA in photography, exhibits regularly, and is a full time instructor working with students in darkroom techniques, the history and development of photography as a cultural force, and many disciplines within photography’s scope. He is currently a professor at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

A 25 year retrospective monograph highlighting Hamilton’s work has just been released in 2020. The essay was written by the critic, Lyle Rexer. To order A Blue Idyll, Hamilton’s beautiful book, visit his website. >
