    This coming Wednesday (October 5) I will present a one-hour illustrated talk called 'Photography Is Not Art - Or So It Seems.' as part of the Dodge+Burn Series of Lectures for FlashFest 2016, Winnipeg's 3rd Annual Photography Festival. The lecture series will take place at Photo Central, 957 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg, Manitoba from 7-8 PM.


    'Photography Is Not Art - Or So It Seems.' The PHOTOGRAPH has been around for a relatively short period of time – about 200 years – compared to the other art media like drawing, painting and sculpture. As the ‘new kid on the block’, photography however has often had to prove itself as a genuine art form and some genres more so than others. Why is that? I will take a look at this particularly seemingly Canadian phenomenon.


    The complete series of lectures include:


    October 5, 7-8pm – Mike Grandmaison, 'Photography Is Not Art'

    October 12, 7-8pm – Leif Norman

    Leif discusses an alternative humorous history of photography, starting from 200 years ago.

    October 19, 7-8pm – Emma Bonnemaison & Rhayne Vermette

    A discussion about the THE VOICE FROM POINT DOUGLAS: A COMMUNITY-LED PHOTO VOICE PROJECT and how this project creates a platform for women to discuss and create visual narratives around questions of safety, security and well-being in the North End.

    October 26, 7-8pm – Photojournalist Panel Discussion

    Leif Norman and several Manitoba photojournalists will discuss the current state of affairs of modern print media.

    "We all have a book inside us waiting to be written".

    I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting 'The Art of Making A Book' for a second time on Friday, March 18, 2016 at McNally Robinson Booksellers from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. The presentation had originally been scheduled for last month but had to be changed because of a death in the family. To all those who had already registered for the full-house, thank you kindly for your understanding. The first presentation on October 9, 2015 was also a resounding success. Space is limited so register by email to candicegordon@outlook.com


    Donovan Bergman of Friesens will be joining me to discuss everything you want to know about making a book. The event will include a Q&A and some publishing materials will also be given out. The event is sponsored by Friesens, The Manitoba Photo Friends and FlashFest (Winnipeg's Annual Photography Festival). I am looking forward to seeing you there!
