an ASA Zoom Webinar*
Carlye Dundon has spoken at ASA many times on various topics and personalities in the world of art. Her lectures have always been interesting and informative. Her upcoming talk will be about women who have excelled in the world of photography. As there are so many women in this category, Carlye has narrowed her focus to women who, in her words, “were doing things that are relevant with today’s culture and events.”
Among these women were pioneering 20th century photographers, Margaret Bourke-White and Margaret Lange. Their emphasis was on social issues such as drought, homelessness, migration and family separation: issues that are still resonant in the 21st century.
Cindy Sherman and Annie Leibovitz concentrate on images that shock and enlighten us as to how we perceive ourselves and what we do specifically to feel good about ourselves or create a prestigious identity for ourselves. Liebovitz in particular has pushed boundaries with pictures that were initially shocking but are now objects of admiration (Demi Moore’s baby bump, a naked John Lennon wrapped around a fully clothed Yoko Ono, sprawled on their living room rug).
Other photographers include a Revolutionary, a nanny who was also a spy, a black, gender-fluid South African and Arizona’s own first lady of Rodeo, Louise Sherpa.
Carlye has over 30 years of experience in graphic and fine arts, advertising, public relations and interior design. She also worked for eight years as a docent and lecturer for the Tucson Museum of Art. She is a much sought-after speaker on artistic topics and is well known for her fresh and provocative perspective. Learn more about Carlye on her website: www.maxfieldcreativeconsulting.com.
