Photographer Joe Meehan Explains the Evolution of Photography

On February 20 at 11 am, Noble Horizons and the Housatonic Camera Club welcome professional photographer and writer Joe Meehan for a free program chronicling the evolution of photography. A photograph is frequently described as just “a single moment in time” and consequently is often thought of in such a limited context. In fact, since its invention in the mid-19th century, photography has played an enormously important role on many different levels for both individuals and society in general. Professional photographer and writer, Joseph Meehan, will demonstrate this with illustrated examples beginning with the early days of photography up to today’s digital era. Meehan will conclude by pointing out how digital technology has brought about changes, both positive and negative, in the traditional role of photography.

During Meehan’s 40-year career, over 1000 of his photographs have appeared in newspapers, books, magazines and on websites such as National Geographic and the Smithsonian Museum.  He has been an expedition photographer in extremes ranging from the Arctic to California’s Death Valley and has authored over 20 books on photographic technique, many of which have received “best book” awards and been translated into several languages.  The New York Times described his work “…alive with color and sparkling light.”
