An Evening with Eugene Richards
Eugene Richards is a photographer, writer, and documentary filmmaker who is best known for his books and photographic essays on such diverse topics as breast cancer, drug addiction, poverty, AIDS, and emergency medicine. He is the author of fifteen books, the most recent being The Blue Room (Phaidon, 2008), a collection of his photographs on abandoned houses in rural America, as well as A Procession of Them (University of Texas Press, 2008), which confronts the plight of the institutionalized mentally disabled. His current book project, War Is Personal, is a documentation in words and pictures of the consequences of the Iraq war.
In his talk, Eugene Richards will discuss the many book projects he’s undertaken since becoming a photographer nearly forty years ago, as well as his forays into filmmaking and advertising work. His main focus will be his latest publications, A Procession of Them and The Blue Room, both published in Fall 2008.
