The Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford is pleased to present a lecture on photography titledThe Color Problem by John Rohrbach, Senior Curator of Photographs, The Amon Carter Museum of American Art (Forth Worth, Texas) on Tuesday, April 4th from 2-3:30 PM in Wilde Auditorium and is sponsored by The Ellen Carey Visiting Artist Fund.

Color has always been a problem for photographers. Even today, its required compromises defeat true reflection of the world. This talk will share tales of photographers’ longstanding love-hate relationship with color photography, and suggest how the restricted semantics of photographic color shapes our understanding of the world.

A leading figure in the field of fine art photography, Rohrbach is Senior Curator of Photographs at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art. He is the author on many books on photography, most recently: Color! American Photography Transformed, which was also an exhibition.

The lecture is free and open to the public, all are welcome! Any questions please contact Associate Professor of Photography Ellen Carey at
