Landscape photographer Earl Iversen presentation at Beach Mueum of Art

Submitted by Martha Scott

Earl Iversen, associate professor emeritus of photography at the University of Kansas, will give a talk about his work at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. It is free and open to the public.

"I'll be talking in general about my 38 years of visual experiences making pictures in Kansas and working in the context of landscape of huge skies and sometimes seemingly overwhelming horizontality," he said. "It's a matter of choice what we decide to enclose in the rectangle of a picture and I like to talk about how those choices get made."

As part of his talk, Iversen is bringing along one of his big wood cameras he uses for his work. Attendees will have the opportunity to look through the cameras.

Iversen is the 2012 Friends of the Beach Museum of Art gift print artist. The honor, awarded by the support group for Kansas State University's art museum, showcases one of the best artists in the state or region each year. Iversen's work is on display at the museum now through May 20.

The Beach Museum of Art is on the southeast corner of the Kansas State University campus.
