Maine Media Workshops + College is hosting a weekly Alumni Lecture Series from October 7 through December 8, 2021, featuring stimulating conversations on a wide array of topics in photo, film, book arts, and writing.
On December 8th, 2021 from 1:00-2:00 pm, the last lecture of the series Little Black Boy will feature photographer and 2021 Arnold Newman Prize winner Rashod Taylor discussing his winning photo series, insights into his practice and how his work speaks to the Black American experience. The lecture will be hosted by Maine Media Provost Elizabeth Greenberg.
Rashod Taylor is a fine art and portrait photographer whose work addresses themes of family, culture, legacy, and the Black American experience. He has earned notable attention for his ongoing longform photo series Little Black Boy, including a recent feature in Forbes. In the series, he documents his son’s life while examining the Black American experience and fatherhood. He uses the frameworks and methods allied with the history of fine art portraiture to contemplate his own family’s narrative within contemporary America. His photographs are deeply rooted in photographic traditions while also breaking new ground.
