Dr. Michael Grillo from the University of Maine was our featured speaker. His presentation, Cultural Vision and Photographic Technologies, looked at photographs of the past two centuries in relation to other visual media in popular culture as well as the Fine Arts to contextualize evolving technologies in terms of the aesthetic visions that they make possible. Michael has been a professor at the University of Maine for three decades and continues his life-long interests in photography as both a practitioner and a theorist. Photography has kept him grounded in a pragmatic enquiry into the nature of vision and effective story-telling.
