What is fine art photography? Who are some of the finest fine art photographers?  Join OLLI Instructor and fine art photographer Thad Kubis (www.tbkphotos.com) for this 4-week course that will define and explain (maybe) “What is Fine Art Photography,” and examine ten of the very best fine art photographers: William Eggleston, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, Cindy Sherman, Alfred Stieglitz, Josef Sudek, Sally Mann, Ansel Adams, Irvin Penn, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo.

    Thaddeus Kubis is a professional fine art photographer and instructor. He has taught a number of photography classes for OLLI, as well as IS183 Art School, the Trustees of Reservations, and other organizations, and leads an OLLI Shared Interest Group on photography.
