LCVA To Hold iPhone Photo Workshop

Published 3:21 pm Thursday, March 5, 2015

On Wednesday, March 11, 6 to 8 p.m., the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts will present the second installment of Art After Dark Creative Gatherings. Photographer Sam Krisch will lead an interactive discussion about how the iPhone has influenced his own photographic work, as well as demonstrate how you can use your smartphone or tablet to produce engaging and creative images.

Art After Dark replaces the formal “lecture” format normally associated with museums with interdisciplinary activities such as this iPhone Photography workshop. The evening gatherings have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages engaging conversation. All activities are completely free of charge, and are made possible in part through the very generous support of the Longwood Parent’s Council.

Krisch is well regarded for his iPhone work, including publication of an iPhone portfolio in PHOTOGRAPH magazine, and awards and exhibitions in juried shows in New York, Denver, Miami and Modesto, California. In 2013 he exhibited his iPhone photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lynchburg in the solo exhibition ROAMING PLAN: iPhone Adventures.

Recently Krisch’s landscapes were exhibited at Virginia Tech’s Moss Arts Center in ELEMENTS: Sam Krisch. This summer his polar-themed work will be shown in a solo exhibition at the Lehigh Valley Museum of Art in Allentown, PA.

Sam Krisch is a Roanoke, Virginia-based photographer renowned for his compelling landscapes and iPhone photography. His landscape, iPhone, and portrait work have been exhibited throughout the U. S., and his prints are in corporate, museum, and individual collections.

Krisch is a faculty member of the Museum School at the Taubman Museum of Art where he is currently an Adjunct Curator of Photography. He has organized the Taubman’s current exhibition GENERATIONS: Paul Caponigro and John Paul Caponigro and this spring will teach a digital photography workshop at the museum.

He received his B. A. from Harvard University in History and two master’s degrees from Hollins University: an M.A.L.S. in Humanities, and an M. A. in Film Studies and Screenwriting.
