Community Classroom Highlights Landscape Photography
MARCH 4, 2005--The UW-River Falls College of Arts and Sciences Community
Classroom presents "The American Landscape: Landscape Photography
and the Creation of Place" March 10 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the lower
level of the River Falls Public Library on the corner of Division and
UW-RF geography department chair Professor Charles Radar discusses how
our interpretations of landscape photography have shaped our perceptions
of nature in America.
Noted landscape photographer Ansel Adams once said, "A photograph
is usually looked at—seldom looked into." According to Radar,
our often-passive consumption of landscape imagery through art, advertising
and other media is evidence of this.
Although Radar specializes in teaching cartography and geographic information
systems, his work has taken him across the globe and transformed his work
by becoming an avid photographer. Radar combines his formal training in
cultural geography with his passion for photography in this insightful
look at the relationships between imagery and geography.
No reservations are needed to attend the Community Classroom events, which
are free and open to the public. The next event, "Progress into the
Past: Rediscovering our Biblical Roots" by UW-RF art instructor Steven
Derfler is March 31. For more information, contact the UW-RF Outreach
and Graduate Studies Office at 715/425-3256 or 800/228-5607.
