Gallery Talk - Frederick Sommer - SMoCA, Feb. 19, 2009

I attended a Gallery Talk at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) last night. The current exhibit is "At the Crossroads of American Photography: Callahan, Siskind, Sommer." The talk this night was on Frederick Sommer and was presented by Claire Carter, the co-curator of the show, and Naomi Lyons and Jeremy Cox, co-trustees of the Frederick & Frances Sommer Foundation. The talk was very informative and, of course, the prints were beautiful.

I recorded the gallery talk and have an MP3 file (30MB, 1 hr. 4 min.) linked here (please excuse the first few seconds as I was fumbling to start the recorder after they started talking unexpectedly).

The exhibit continues through May 13, 2009 and is worth the trip.
