Acclaimed photographer to speak at APSU

Known for creating oversized, staged photographs, Adi Nes will speak about his photography at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 28 in the Trahern Building.

The talk is free and open to the public.

His images deal with themes of humanity and masculinity while investigating elements of Israeli identity, such as militarism, religion, ethnic groups and the tension between the center and the periphery. Nes often gleans ideas from mythology, art history and the history of photography.
