Upcoming Photography Lectures in Boston

Mass Art has organized a stimulating and diverse program of visiting lecturers for the fall, including Dawoud Bey, Kelli Connell and the founder/director of The Center for Land Use Interpretation, Matthew Coolidge.

For anyone who doesn't know about CLUI, they are a research organization based in Culver City, California devoted to the exploration and understanding of contemporary land use issues. They focus mainly on the evaluation of mankind's interaction with, and subsequent perception of the earth's surface. For anyone who hasn't visited their website I implore you to do so. They have compiled an impressive Land Use Database, comprised extensively of photographs and maps of every state categorizing various methods of land use.

Anyways, on to the lectures!
