On Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 7pm Karin Rosenthal will discuss her photographic journey in the President's Dining Room. She has photographed nudes in the landscape since 1975, finding resonances between body and nature first in B&W traditional images and now in digital color photography. In this most wide-ranging exhibition of her work to date, the show will draw from a variety of series to convey the evolution and range of her ideas and explorations. Using light and reflection primarily, Rosenthal ha created abstractions that challenge us to see beyond the predictable. Provocative illusions trump reality even though the images are straight shots.
