GREENVILLE — The Greene County Camera Club is presenting a seven-part series, “World Events Through the Eyes of Photojournalism,” by retired photojournalist Gary Miller, of Saugerties NY. The presentations are scheduled for the second Thursday each month, beginning February 14, at the Greenville Library, at 7:00 pm in the lower art center.
Miller has culled thousands of photographs and hundreds of hours of video to tell the story of photojournalism since the age of cave drawings, through the Civil War, major historical upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries, ending in a kaleidoscope of modern times, television, the Internet and social media.
“Photojournalism is a fascinating subject in general,” says GCCC president Nora Adelman, “and its relation to world events thought-provoking. It has often sparked critiques during our monthly contests. We’re excited to present this series and welcome anyone interested in both the subject or photography in general.”
Presenter Gary Miller enjoyed a career of photojournalism, annual report photography, filmmaking, live television, and media consulting. He has taught at The New School for Social Research and is the author of a book on freelance photography. He is a member of the Greene County Camera Club and enjoys attending its bi-monthly (2nd and 4th Thursdays) meetings.
“It’s gratifying that the club is welcoming this series,” says Miller, “and we are putting out a warm welcome mat to visitors and guests.”
