Animal Lectures #01 Caiman crocodilus by Andrew McGibbon

In Animal Lectures, a new project by animal fine art photographer Andrew McGibbon, created in partnership with the Horsney Town Hall Arts Centre, and presented alongside expert animal co-ordinator Trevor Smith, splendid still images meet live demonstration, education and performance art, unraveling the crocodile’s great mysteries. #Love it!

Join us for a special Earth Day lecture with world-renowned marine photographer/filmmaker and dedicated environmentalist, Bob Talbot!

Talbot’s lecture, titled “The Power of Film: Inspiring Action for Monterey Bay,” will take you on a journey of filmmaking, underwater adventures, and experiences on the ocean conservation front lines, reminding us that our sanctuaries are what we make them as we all have the power to destroy and power to heal. 

Student: “Why do you make art?”
Garry Winogrand: “It’s a way of living. It’s a way of passing through the time.”
Student: “Then I can’t really take your images seriously.”
Winogrand: “Look, so you like a lot of rhetoric. All there is is the pictures. I’m irrelevant to the pictures. You have a lot to learn, young man. The artist is irrelevant once the work exists.”

Pratt Photography Lectures presents Stephen Shore in conversation with Peter Kayafas on Wed. Jan. 28th at 6:30pm in Higgins Hall Auditorium, Pratt Brooklyn Campus.

Free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:00pm for the Pratt community and at 6:15 for the public.

Additional speakers this spring will include Jackie Nickerson, Mark Steinmetz, Philip Gefter on “Sam Wagstaff, Robert Mapplethorpe and the Gay Sensibility,” and Catherine Opie.

Taking Notes: The Outlining Method

The Outlining Method

Dash or indented outlining is usually best except for some science classes such as physics or math.

  1. The information which is most general begins at the left with each more specific group of facts indented with spaces to the right.
  2. The relationships between the different parts is carried out through indenting.
  3. No numbers, letters, or Roman numerals are needed.
