Henry Rowan presents: Down the rabbit hole, photographing non-existent images

The cellphone camera has exponentially increased image creation. Is everyone a photographer now? Is photography still an art form?

Questions like these will create a stimulating evening when Henry presents via Zoom live-cast so everyone can enjoy it safely from the comfort of home. Rowan’s talk will tackle thorny questions about the nature of photography as art in the digital age. “I’m interested in the very real difference between “taking pictures” and creating photographs that reflect the perceived essence of the image as envisioned by the photographer,” says Rowan, a Doylestown, Pennsylvania resident and photographer. Rowan’s subject matter is eclectic, ranging from portraits for personal and professional use to unique digital images that are works of art. He heads the Pennsylvania Center for Photography in Doylestown, through which he lectures and offers workshops.

Participants will be muted during the presentation, but the speaker will take selected questions from the audience after his presentation, as time allows.
