World-class photographer and printmaker to visit campus

World-class photographer and printmaker Byron Brauchli will visit the UCA campus on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 6-7 and make three presentations about his work.

At 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 6, Brauchli will give a slide presentation in McCastlain Hall Room 143. At 9 a.m. and then at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, Brauchli will give an informal talk about his work in Baum Gallery, which is located in McCastlain Hall. All presentations are free and open to the public.

Brauchli specializes in alternate photographic processes and Mexican-American visual studies. His photographs have been exhibited internationally in such venues as The Galveston Arts Center, The Houston Center for Photography, The Austin Museum of Art, El Museo de Antropologia, Xalapa, Veracruz, El Centro cultural Tijuana and the Galeria Alve de la Canal and University of Veracruz.

In 1996, Brauchli received a U.S.-Mexico Fund for Culture Grant (Rockefeller Foundation/Fonda Nacional para la Cultura y Artes) to conduct a bi-national project visually documenting the border region. Workshops were conducted on landscape photography and alternate photographic processes, and a catalogue and Internet exhibition resulted.

Recently, Brauchli was a Fulbright Robles Garcia Scholar where he worked for a year in collaboration with the Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Veracruz on the project Landscape and Modernity. Currently he is a researcher at the Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Veracruz.
