Latow is honored to host renowned photographer Yuri Dojc for an evening that is certain to be memorable. Yuri's recent show at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Last Folio, exemplifies his observational approach to the past, producing gorgeous but haunting images. Since the late 1990s, Yuri has been documenting Slovakia's last living Holocaust survivors and the country’s abandoned synagogues, schools, and cemeteries for a series called Last Folio. An international success, this show travels extensively, with major exhibitions in Rome, Berlin, Moscow, New York, Sao Paulo, Republic of Georgia, and others.
Guests are welcome for a rare visit to a camera club by this important artist. We will have extra room for this special occasion and there will be no charge for non-members.
Yuri Dojc's appearance is generously supported by Fujifilm.
Guest speaker Tom Bochsler is a pioneering commercial photographer based in Hamilton since 1950. Tom will reflect on his years with BP Imaging and the wide variety of subject matter in his recent book and show, The Art of Industry. Tom calls the book a photo-biography:
"The early part of the book includes a variety of press and PR photos, which was much of what I photographed for the several medias and company news papers in the 1950’s and 60’s. Industrial photography was challenging and satisfying because I was able to create images that my clients didn’t believe were possible. I achieved this through lighting, composition and usually including a worker doing what was technical correct and safe too. I use a phrase that describes a lot of industry photography in that era, ‘dirty, dark and dangerous’.
The books origin comes from prompting by some of my great clients and my wish to create a photo-biography of my work experiences and opportunities as a photographer and more specifically as an industrial photographer."
