ARTIST TALK & BOOK SIGNING
Jenny Sampson and Stephen Albair
in conversation with Ann Jastrab and Heather Snider
Tuesday, December 19, 2017
6 – 8 PM
Please join us on Tuesday, December 19th for an evening of artist talks and book signings with photographers Jenny Sampson and Stephen Albair.
For over seven years, San Francisco-based photographer Jenny Sampson has been making tintype portraits of skateboarders in a portable darkroom that she carries to skate parks around California, Oregon, and Washington. These captivating images of skaters are presented in Sampson’s first monograph Skaters: Tintype Portraits of West Coast Skateboarders, which was published by Daylight Books this past October. Jenny Sampson earned a B.A. in Psychobiology in 1991 from Pitzer College and has since dedicated her time to her photographic endeavors, which include wet plate collodion, traditional black and white photography, and commissioned portraits. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. When not in the field or the darkroom, she pursues another chemically-related talent -- cooking professionally.
Photographer Stephen Albair has been working in both 2-D and 3-D media for over 40 years. He is known for his arresting autobiographical imagery that uses tableau photography, in which found objects are arranged with collages and photos, like players on a stage at the moment of action. Albair will show work from his third book, False Bloom, which highlights his writings in tandem with his photography. His work is in many public and private collections, and he has exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably in Bangkok, Thailand, launching three major exhibitions. Here in the Bay Area, Albair is also known as a college teacher, lecturer, and a visiting artist.
