Black & White: Photojournalism Panel Discussion

Thursday, July 10 • 7–8:30 p.m.

Fine art, documentation, or both? Photography has been at the forefront of this debate for decades. Who decides whether an image is simply functional or truly artistic? What is more important—the subject matter, the photographer, or the technical skill? Experts from the fields of journalism, contemporary art, and publishing will debate these aspects of The New York Times Magazine Photographs exhibition.

The panelists:
• Virginia Chamlee, managing editor of Jacksonville Magazine
• Jon M. Fletcher, photographer
• Kelly Jordan, visuals editor at USA Today
• Paul Karabinis, associate professor of photography at the University of North Florida
• Kerry Oliver-Smith, curator of contemporary art at the Harn Museum of Art

Free and Open to the Public

Donations in support of our free programs are greatly appreciated. Regular admission fees apply for nonmembers who visit the galleries before or after the programs.

Attend the Members’ Reception at 6-7 p.m.
