Jason Fulford Lecture
This lecture by Jason Fulford took place on March 2, 2012 in the Timken Lecture Hall of the California College of the Arts, San Francisco, CA.
The lecture was sponsored by Pier 24 Photography as part of the Spring 2012 Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Program.
Jason Fulford has been depicting "the simultaneous feeling of sad and funny" throughout his career. Born in Atlanta, GA, and now living in San Francisco, CA, Fulford has a BA from Pratt Institute in New York. His work has been exhibited in New York, Seattle, Copenhagen, Budapest, Atlanta and Kansas City, and has been published in The New York Times Magazine, Harper's, Life, Newsweek, Suddeutche Zeitung, among many more.
His photographs have also graced the covers of books published by virtually every major publishing house - which is entirely fitting, as Fulford is co-founder of a book imprint himself (J&L Books, Inc., established 2001). A graphic designer and freelance commercial photographer as well as an artist, Fulford is the author of four books: The Mushroom Collector (2010), Raising Frogs for $ $ $ (2006), Crushed (2003), and Sunbird (2000). His project, The Mushroom Collection, is on view until April 2012 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
