President’s Lecture Series: Photography, Social Media, and Our Digital Culture

President’s Lecture Series: Photography, Social Media, and Our Digital Culture

Fine art photographer and educator Marian Howard will present “Photography, Social Media, and Our Digital Culture” on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. Her talk will be the next installment of the President’s Lecture Series in Donaghay Hall, Room DON 106.

Ms. Howard will lead a discussion on photography, social media and digital culture. She will address the history of social media, the influence of photography in social media and vice versa, along with tips on how to take better smartphone images, worthwhile photo-editing apps, and popular photo-sharing apps. The one-hour program will uncover that mobile photography is much more than just taking pictures with your cell phone.

In 2014, Ms. Howard received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Delaware. Since then, she has taught introductory photography courses at Salem Community College, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center and Saint Joseph’s University, where she was awarded from the adjunct faculty development fund in 2016. Her personal photography work has been exhibited nationally in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Minnesota, Vermont, Delaware and Ohio.

Ms. Howard’s art work explores the medium of photography in all of its iterations. Her ongoing series, The story of us, is a visual record of the world we live in. It is the story of human interaction told by the traces that have been left behind. This work explores the realm of Mobile Photography from its creation on an iPhone 7 through to its dissemination on Instagram. Her intention is to engage, evaluate and elevate what it means to be human within the context of our digital culture. Follow her on Instagram @marianstaz.
