Max Kozloff: As Luck Would Have It:

The Element of Chance in Photography

SVA Theatre, 333 West 23 Street
Photography may be considered the ideal medium for fishing out things, appearances and events that don't make sense or otherwise defy reason. In this lecture art historian and critic Max Kozloff will discuss the havoc wreaked upon the notion of story in photography by writers sympathetic to the element of chance, maintaining that as an explanatory principle to explain what happens, chance explains nothing. This will be illustrated by various photographs featuring the smiles of women. Presented by the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department.
