Nudes Night Tuesday, April 30, 2013, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Guest Host: Karin Rosenthal Open to all photographers, artists, and enthusiasts interested in the nude body as subject. Six presenter slots available. Karin Rosenthal has photographed the nude in nature since 1975 and, for sixteen years, has led students at all skill levels to discover these combined genres in original and personal ways. Rosenthal’s nudes have been published and exhibited internationally and are represented in sixteen museum collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the International Center for Photography; the Fogg, Rose, and Danforth Museums; the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Barbara; and the Brooklyn Museum. Her photograph in the exhibition First Doubt: Optical Confusion in Modern Photography at the Yale University Art Gallery was selected to represent the show of 100 images by 20th Century photographers and was featured in The New York Times review. She has received several awards including Grand Prize in the Renaissance International Photography Competition, First Prize for Nudes in the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, and the Ultimate Eye Foundation Grant for Figurative Photography. A book, Karin Rosenthal: Twenty Years of Photographs, was produced for a retrospective of her black-and-white nudes at the Danforth Museum in 2000. The PRC recently co-sponsored a year-long exhibition of her work with MIT’s Center for Theoretical Physics. In addition to workshops, Rosenthal teaches classes in her Watertown studio. She is a Resident Scholar at Brandeis’ Women’s Studies Research Center.
