    Veteran documentarian leads free presentation from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 12 at the Center for Creative Arts
    Event Description:

    The new millennium has put a quality camera in nearly everyone’s pocket in the form of a smartphone.  Veteran documentarian Bryce Lankard will discuss how the adoption of the iPhone camera is responsible for a resurgence in his street photography and filmmaking during a special presentation from 10 a.m. to noon March 12 at the Center for Creative Arts, located at 8 Church Street next door to The Society of Bluffton Artists’ (SoBA) gallery in Old Town Bluffton.


    The event is free and open to the public. A $5 donation to SoBA is requested. Seating is limited, so please register online at https://sobagallery.com/artists-talk/.


    Lankard has a 35-year career as a documentarian. He regularly exhibits his work in the southern United States and he teaches for Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies.  In addition to showcasing images and videos of his celebrated work, Lankard also will share some tips and tricks on how to use the camera phone and an app or two to create powerful images.


    Lankard’s current project, “Drawn to Water,” was featured in the Summer 2016 issue of Southern Cultures and has solo exhibitions at Flanders Gallery in Raleigh, NC and the South East Center for Photography in Greenville, SC. HIs work was recently featured in “Across County Lines, Contemporary Photography from the Piedmont” at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and he exhibited iPhone photography at the PhotoNOLA festival in December of 2018.


    Lankard has been making images in the South as a documentary photographer for more than three decades. He was a co-founder and creative director of Tribe Magazine, co-founder of the non-profit New Orleans Photo Alliance, a co-founder and  executive director of the Click! Photography Festival and a veteran instructor at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.


    SoBA is the heart of the flourishing art hub in Old Town Bluffton’s historic district at the corner of Church and Calhoun streets. Located next door to the gallery is the Center for Creative Arts — where regular classes, presentations and exhibits also take place.
