“Facing the Photographic Book: Helmar Lerski’s Everyday Heads,” presented by Pepper Stetler, Visiting Instructor at Miami University of Ohio. Dr. Stetler received her PhD at University of Delaware and is a specialist in the art of Weimar Republic. Her present work explores a particular creation of the Weimar artists, the photographic book which offered a radical response to the growing dominance of photography and film in modern life. She is particularly interested in the issues of perception and relationship between reading and seeing. Though she only finished her PhD in January 2009, she has already published on aspects of these photographic books and on the work of László Moholy-Nagy.
