Artist Talk : Michael Littman

  • Bushwick Community Darkroom 110 Troutman Street Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Michael Littman was born before Generations had catchy names. He started taking Black and White Photos with his Nikon F film camera because he couldn't afford a Leica Camera at that time. He was under the influence of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams because he considered them to be Artists rather then Photographers. Michael worked thematically and discovered in 1968 that the Myrtle Avenue El was going to be torn down. He took innumerable photos during that year and produced a personal book on that subject. He has enjoyed a lifetime of photographic experiences. He spent part of the last 10 years in China promoting Photography and installing shows. He was a High School Teacher in New York City for 32 years and enjoyed using photography as part of the curriculum. Michael will be happy to share my influences, techniques and experiences at the Bushwick Community Darkroom on June 7th 2017 at 7PM.
