Artist’s Talk: The Omnipresent Camera


Bryce Lankard will lead a special lecture from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 12 at the Center for Creative Arts next to SoBA gallery in Bluffton. This is free and open to the public. A donation of $5 is requested. Registration is required.

The new millennium has put a quality camera in nearly everyone’s pocket in the form of a smartphone.  Bryce Lankard’s adoption of the iPhone as a serious tool for image making is responsible for a resurgence in his street photography and filmmaking. The camera phone and an app or two are a powerful and creative tool. If one can learn a few tips and tricks one can make their voice sing with this little device. Lankard will be sharing his images and videos in this artist’s talk.

Bryce Lankard has been making images in the south as a documentary photographer for 35 years. He was a co-founder and creative director of Tribe Magazine and co-founder of the non-profit New Orleans Photo Alliance. He is a co-founder and the executive director of the Click!
