"An Evening with Thorney Lieberman"
This will be at our next general meeting in one of the studios behind the Museum of Art in Huntington on Thursday September 14th at 6:30.
This New York native begin his career in Architectural Photography in his home state and became very well-known for his work in that field. He worked with many top architects, including being the main photographer for Mr. I. M. Pei (winner of the Pritzker Prize, in 1983, sometimes termed the Nobel Prize of Architecture.
Thorny later moved to Colorado, where he developed a unique technique for producing life-size images, which he applied to creating full-size images of the Native Americans in ceremonial dress.
After another move, this time to West Virginia, his wife's own home state, Thorney applied the technique he had developed to life-size portraits of coal miners and their families, producing poignant images, many of children.
His body of work has been exhibited around the world. He has taught Architectural Photography and has presented private workshops.
We are very pleased that he has agreed to spend an evening with us. With his background, his history
of adapting to his situation and his interest in the process of photography, this should be an interesting
and education program.
