FRANK LOPEZ
Frank Lopez
Frank Lopez considers himself an Antiquarian Avant-Garde photographer. He explores the different cultures and traditions of China, Korea and Vietnam through photography. Traveling with only a pinhole camera, he concentrates on aspects of local culture and variations of manufactured culture – areas of intentional cultural re-appropriation.
Lopez will discuss symbols associated with the found object – slaptags and graffiti art. The juxtaposition of found symbols initially captured with his iPhone and later interpreted into Tintypes and Ambrotypes explores the immediacy of the found object with the seemingly instant 19th Century version of the Polaroid. The ubiquitous smartphone allows the vehicle to bring the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries together.
LOLI KANTOR
Loli Kantor

Loli Kantor is a fine art and documentary photographer whose work is concerned with community and the human condition. Born in Paris, France, and raised in Israel, Kantor immigrated to the United States in 1984. Her recent work centers on Jewish life and culture in central and eastern Europe. As the daughter of Holocaust survivors, Kantor brings a deeply personal interest as well as a unique sensibility to this body of work. The project, entitled “Beyond The Forest”, was published by the University of Texas Press in November 2014 and will be available for purchase following the evening’s presentation.

 
Kantor’s work has garnered notable awards and recognition and has been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally. Her photographs are included in museum collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin; Lishui Museum of Photography in China; and Lviv National Museum in Ukraine as well as numerous private collections in the United States and abroad.
