DEBORAH LUSTER: Pratt Photography Lecture

Higgins Hall Auditorium
61 St. James Place, Brooklyn

New Orleans-based Photographer Deborah Luster will speak as part of the Pratt Photography Department's 2013 Lecture Series on Wednesday, April 3. The lecture will take place at 7PM in Higgins Hall Auditorium, 61 St. James Place, Brooklyn, and is free and open to the public.

The theme of violence remains front and center in Luster's photographs, revolving around the murder of her mother in 1988. She is most famous for her series One Big Self: Prisoners of Louisiana; Tooth for an Eye: a Chorography of Violence in Orleans Parish; and Prison Culture. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and others.
