Lance Keimig, a photographer best known for his nocturnal images, will present the second lecture in this year’s Photographers’ Lecture Series on April 15 at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and will be held in the Dodge Room, Reed Campus Center.
Mr. Keimig’s book, Night Photography: Finding Your Way In The Dark, was published by Focal Press in August of 2010, and has been translated into six languages. A second edition will be published in late 2014. In a short documentary of the same name, Mr. Keiming described his work as a unique way of compressing time.
“Night photographs record time and record the world in a way that we can’t perceive with our own senses,” he said. “When night photography is really most successful, that’s when this transformation occurs during the exposure and you end up with something that is just so special and unique that you couldn’t have imagined it if you tried.”
Mr. Keimig’s photographs are held in numerous collections, including The Art Complex Museum In Duxbury, Mass., The Boston Athenaeum, The Boston Public Library, The Grace Museum in Abilene, Texas, State Street Bank, Fidelity Investments, Paramount Partners, Hitachi, Rayovac, 3 Com, and many private collections.
Mr. Keimig is the curator of “Darkness, Darkness,” a traveling exhibit of Night Photography that opened at Harvard University’s Three Columns Gallery in 2008. He was also curator of Three Columns Gallery from 2005-2010.
