Lecture: “The Photo as Object” by Lindsey Beal

October 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$7 – $12

Part of FlashPoint Boston Festival. This event is hosted at The Griffin Museum of Photography.

We think of the photograph as a framed print or digital image on a screen. However, early photography allowed the viewer to interact with a photographic object such as the daguerreotype or tintype.  Since the 1970’s, artists and photographers combine sculpture, installation, books and other methods with photography to create photographic objects. This hour-long lecture will present historical and contemporary photographers and artists working three-dimensionally.


Lindsey Beal is a photo-based artist in Providence, Rhode Island where she teaches at Rhode Island School of Design, Massachusetts College of Art & Design, and New Hampshire Institute of Art’s MFA program. Her work combines historical & contemporary women’s lives with historical photographic processes, sculpture, papermaking and artist books into her work.  She was featured on Lenscratch, Don’t Take Pictures, LensCulture, & Light Leaked, and published in Diffusion, Art New England, Camera and 500 Handmade Books Volume Two.  She recently was a Finalist for Photolucida’s Critical Mass,  the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund and earned a travel grant from Duke University.
