Thursday Night Photo Talk with Nicholas Muellner

Thursday, April 23 at 7 PM, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center presents Nicholas Muellner live-streaming Making Doubles, a scripted slide show based on the opening essay of his new book, Lacuna Park: Essays and Other Adventures in Photography, published by SPBH Editions.

Thursday Night Photo Talk with Nicholas Muellner

This illustrated reading, incorporating dozens of images not included in the book, from old iPhone photos to his newest experiments in portraiture, attempts to trace some links between our own appearances in images, and our ongoing submission to the seductions of coercive ideology. Intertwining memoir, reportage, fiction and theory, Muellnerfs new image-text book asks: what is existentially at stake today in the making and viewing of photographs?

"Sigmund Freud famously declared that 'every dream will reveal itself as a psychological structure, full of significance.' For Nicholas Muellner, the same could be said of every photograph. From his unique perspective as a writer / photographer, Muellner functions as both analyst and patient in this deep dive into the significance of pictures." —Alec Soth

"Lacuna Park is a quite brilliant book. I devoured Nicholas Muellner’s exquisite writing and perfectly constructed stream of bright consciousness in one sitting. It is a very generous book (it is an adventure) and I suspect that every reader will appreciate the open, personal, poetic and erudite call that Muellner gives to think through the meaning of photography at this juncture in history." —Charlotte Cotton

Nicholas Muellner is an artist who operates at the intersection of photography and writing. His five published books include The Photograph Commands Indifference, The Amnesia Pavilions, and In Most Tides, An Island, which was shortlisted for the Aperture/Paris Photo Photobook of the Year. Muellner’s work has been supported by the John Gutmann Fellowship, residencies at the MacDowell and Yaddo Colonies, the Russian National Center of Contemporary Art, and the Carnegie Museum of Art. He is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow in Photography. Muellner is Associate Professor of Photography and Co-Director of the Image Text MFA at Ithaca College and the ITI Press. He received his BA in Comparative Literature from Yale in 1991 and his MFA in Photography from Tyler in 1994.
