JCC LIMUD ZOOM Series: “Photography: An invitation to see and journey anew”
Presenter: Sharon F. Cramer, Ph.D., SUNY Distinguished Service Professor Emerita
Limud meetings combine the personal with the intellectual, inviting exploration. This talk begins with the origins of Limud member Sharon Cramer’s photography interests a decade ago. Join us as Sharon uses some of her photographs to explore the opportunities a camera offers for connecting (or reconnecting) with many subjects. Suggestions will be provided for taking better photographs and enjoying photography. Sharon has initiated photography programs with Explore Buffalo and the Richardson Olmsted Campus, and counts her camera among her closest of friends. A version of this talk was offered a few years ago, as part of the University Express program.
