I just returned from the lecture of R. Riedler, an Austrian photographer. I know his work since he had great exhibition in Novo mesto, gallery APT. He is really great photographer and I encourage you to visit http://www.photography.at – his site, but lecture was really bad! He spoke for more then an hour about cliches of cliches and after an hour of superficial talk for secondary school, I left back to Mladina‘s editorial. Leave a comment if the talk about his work was good.

  2. I tend to agree with Borut. The lecture was actually not a lecture at all. It was unprepared and it seemed to me that he was a bit pushed into it. The advertisement fot lecture and the lecture itself are words apart. With all respect towards his work – his talk was really nonsensical. Left after the projection. And another thing: this talk was not even suited for secondary school, he even mixed photograph shot by Alexander Gardner for Mathew Brady’s. Of course since it is a part of Brady Civil War Photograph Collection. Heh… a bit hasty and unprepared. I liked his last series of photographs though.

  3. Cooool! What a relief! I think his work is great and i have his book about Ukraine on my bookshelf. I wanted to go but i fell asleep in the afternoon and just wasn’t into going when time came… So it’s nice to hear i didn’t miss much…

  4. I was in Paris so I am happy I didn’t make the trip to hear this lecture. What I really miss in photography these days is authorship.
