The Austin Chapter of the Fulbright Association will host a talk by fine art photographer Joe Vitone at the IC2 Institute. Vitone will share examples of his work as well as pictures by students conducting documentary photography projects. Attendees will view images from Asia, Central America, Europe, and the United States in this richly illustrated talk that considers photography as a way to understand culture, people, and place. Ideas and experiences shared should be of particular interest not only to those who love to experience the world through the lens of a camera, but also to students, academics, and professionals interested in applying for Fulbright grants and study abroad. Current Fulbright scholars are enthusiastically invited to join us.
Joe Vitone has lectured internationally on his work. His photographs are held in numerous museum collections. He is professor of Photocommunications at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas and sits on the board of directors of the Austin Chapter of the Fulbright Association. He has served as a Fulbright scholar in Costa Rica.
Come for the talk and stay for food and refreshments along with your wonderful conversation. We particularly would love to see Fulbrighters and anyone who might be thinking of applying for or learning more about Fulbright program grants. Free Admission. Free on site parking.
