SHSU Lecture, "Finding Meaning in Landscape Photography"

On Thursday, February 18th, I'll be lecturing at Sam Houston State University. I think it's an interesting topic, "Finding Meaning in Landscape Photography." I've thought about it quite a bit, and in fact ask my students this same question, though I pose it differently; "What is the value of art for the artist?"

The photo posted here is one of Robert Adams. Both his writing and his photographs has a tremendous influence on my work.
