Speaker: John Metoyer
“Blood Migration: A Most Amazing Book”
Come and participate in a power point presentation by one of America's most gifted photographic artists and poets. John Metoyer is an extremely rare person, one who is a master of 2 different arts. (John Wood)
Sought out by 21st Editions, a most prestigious publishing house that is said to be “..... walking in the footsteps of (Alfred) Stieglitz” (Wall Street Journal), John submitted photographic images and poetry, resulting in 60 hand-made copies of his first book, Blood Migration 2008, since purchased by the Getty, MOMA, the British Museum and 50 other institutions and collectors.
John exclusively uses the rich photographic techniques of a century ago resulting in images that are haunting, magical, disturbing but fun, terrifying yet beautiful. His poetry has been described as grisly yet encompassing compassion and grandeur.
Currently John is Vice President of Harold Washington College while also Professor of Art and Professor of English.
