Pioneering Image-Maker Kicks off Photo Lecture Series


Williston’s Photographer’s Lecture Series kicks off with digital photography pioneer Dan Burkholder. A Master platinum printer, in the early 1990’s Burkholder wrote the groundbreaking book Making Digital Negatives for Contact Printing, opening doors for legions of image-makers wishing to combine the precision of digital imaging with the warmth and charm of the handmade print.

He continues to forge ahead into new areas of photography, preaching the fine art potential of the Apple iPhone and the smaller micro 4/3 cameras.

His innovations introduced two original darkroom techniques, creating the pigment over platinum print in 2001 and the platinum over gold leaf print in 2007.

Burkholder will spend time working with students and will deliver a talk, free and open to the pubic, in the Dodge Room of Reed Campus Center from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
