Presented by photographer George Krause

The exhibition Self, Model, and Self as Other provides an opportunity to reflect upon questions of artistic intent. Photographer George Krause, represented in the exhibition, is familiar with many of the featured photographers and their work. In this talk, he examines his own self-portraits—and those by others—to ponder why (or why not) certain choices are made. A reception follows.
