California photographer David Steinberg will give a slide lecture entitled, "Honest Encounters: Capturing Intimacy on Film," on Friday, October 19, 2007, beginning at 4:00 pm in the Herron School of Art and Design Auditorium. What are the emotional, sexual, and artistic dynamics involved in trying to capture something honest and evocative about sex on film? How does a photographer help people feel free to reveal the emotional subtleties of their sexual connection to him and, through him, to the outside world? Is it possible for a couple to engage in honest sex during a photo session? What can a photograph show about the intimate aspects of sex to people who don't witness that sex in person? Since 1999, David Steinberg has photographed 130 couples with these questions in mind. He will discuss his work and show images from a wide variety of photo sessions. An opening reception will follow the lecture, from 5:30 - 8:00 pm, in the Herron Gallery. All events are free and open to the public.

Expressive Bodies will travel to the Indiana University North Gallery for Contemporary Art in Gary, IN in the winter of 2008.
