Can photography radically change your relationship with the natural world? Award-winning documentary photographer Susan Patrice believes it can. On Friday, January 22, Susan Patrice will be sharing images and stories from her most recent project, The Enveloping Landscape, which features stunning, round, black and white photographs that offer a unique view of the beautiful and sometimes threatened forests of the Southern Appalachian region. Nature enthusiasts and photographers of all levels are invited to attend this free artist talk to learn more about the power of everyday photography to animate love, encourage meaningful dialogue, and most importantly, inspire an increased commitment to caring for our common home. Susan Patrice will also be sharing information about how you can participate in her newly launched citizen-photography project Photo Terra, which pairs local photographers with regional non-profit and conservation organizations. 


*Instructions for joining via Zoom will be included in your confirmation email following registration. A recording of the class will be made available to registered participants for a limited period following the session for review and to provide access to those with scheduling conflicts.


Susan Patrice is a documentary photographer, community artist, and founder of Makers Circle. She recently launched the Six Feet Photography Project, a community project that encourages photographers to make and share images of their lived experiences of confinement and social distancing. Susan's own photography and public installations focus primarily on the Southern Landscape and its people and feature intimate images that touch deeply into the questions of place, gender, and belonging.
