Education Night (Special Guest)

October 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Zoom (contact David for details)
David Kahn

Special Guest:   Jay Ball

Topic:   Sight Gags – A book of photographic humor!

Note: Until further notice, our meetings will be via Zoom.

We have a special guest speaker, Jay Ball, for our October 5 Education Night (rescheduled from September 28).  Jay will be talking about his recently published (with his son, Alan) book of photographs: Sight Gags.

Jay and Alan have a lot in common, including their love of photography and wordplay.  Some 25 years ago, they came up with a way to combine the two – a technique they call photopuns.  As seen in the example below, the title of each photograph and its subject are connected via creative wordplay.

Jay will be sharing with us the inspiration for this ongoing project, some of his creative techniques, and an assortment of images from the book.

From Jay: In these days of COVID-19, climate change, gerrymandering, election interference, massive unemployment, Roe v. Wade under siege, nuclear proliferation, world hunger, racism, overpopulation, marine pollution, social unrest and … what have we forgotten? … we thought you might like something to make you smile.  Hopefully, this will do the trick.

Jay got his first camera – a Brownie Reflex – as a gift on his 12th birthday. That was 73 years ago, and he’s been hooked on photography ever since.

If you are new to the group or have any questions, please let me know. We look forward to seeing you.
