Sylvia Plachy Speaks at Duke University
Photographer Sylvia Plachy will be delivering a Keynote Address at Duke University, as part of a workshop for Doc U Arts Institute this Friday. Plachy’s photography has been featured in nearly every major publication, earned her many awards, and have been exhibited in solo shows at galleries and museums around the world. Her first book, Sylvia Plachy’s Unguided Tour, won the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award for Best Publication in 1990. In Self-Portrait With Cows Going Home, (Aperture, 2004), Plachy shared her personal history of central Europe in photographs and text, and her most recent publication, Goings on About Town: Photographs for The New Yorker, features photographs from the legendary section in The New Yorker magazine .
This event is open to the public and is a fantastic opportunity to hear insight from one of photography’s greats.
