Hand-coloring is a process that came into use in the early 1800s in an attempt to create more realistic images from black-and-white photographs, Since the later part of the 1900s, a resurgence in the process of hand-coloring has been seen in the work of artist-photographers, such as Kate Breakey.
Kate Breakey is internationally known for her large-scale, richly hand-colored photographs, including her acclaimed series, Small Deaths, published in 2001 by University of Texas Press. During the talk, she will discuss and present examples of her hand-colored photographs. Read more about Kate on her website here: katebreakey.com/
This artist talk will be held in Singer Hall and is free for PAM and INFOCUS members, $5 general admission.
