Louisiana Lecture in English on Diane Arbus with British author and critic Geoff Dyer

The British author and critic Geoff Dyer, who is a great connoisseur of photography – and especially in the period when Diane Arbus worked – believes that one can rightly say that Arbus has added “new insight” to the world. Or, as he puts it, “a kind of wisdom that goes beyond what one might otherwise register.”

In this Lecture, Geoff Dyer will focus on how we can see this in Arbus’ images and how we should respond to it.

Geoff Dyer is the author of many books, including three about photography: ‘The Ongoing Moment’, ‘The Street Photography of Garry Winogrand’ and ‘See/Saw’.  He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Science.  His new book, ‘The Last Days of Roger Federer’ comes out this summer.

Louisiana Lecture på engelsk om Diane Arbus af den engelske forfatter og kritiker Geoff Dyer

Den britiske forfatter og kritiker Geoff Dyer , der er en stor kender af fotografi – og særligt i den periode, hvor Diane Arbus virkede – mener, at man med rette kan sige, at Arbus har tilført verden “ny indsigt”. Eller, som han formulerer det, “en slags visdom, der rækker ud over, hvad man ellers kan registrere.”

I denne Lecture vil Geoff Dyer fokusere på, hvordan man kan aflæse dette i Arbus’ billeder, og hvordan vi egentlig skal reagere på det.

Geoff Dyer er forfatter til mange bøger herunder flere om fotografi: ‘The Ongoing Moment’, ‘The Street Photography of Garry Winograd’ og ‘See/Saw’. Dyer er Fellow på Royal Society of Literature og medlem af American Academy of Arts and Science. Hans seneste bog, ‘The Last Days of Roger Federer’ udkommer til sommer.
