Event Description

Thursday July 24 8-11 pm Opening reception.

Thursday July 31 9 pm Poetry Reading by Jeffrey Carson.

ELIZABETH CARSON was born in 1941 in Brooklyn. After studying film at NYU, she moved with her husband to Paros, where she has lived since 1970. In the middle 1960s she moved from cinema to photography, and soon purchased an 8x10 camera. In 1970 on Paros she met Paulien Lethen, and they had many discussions about art over the next few years. They have been friends for well over forty years. Elizabeth has had many exhibitions on Paros and elsewhere, and her photographs have appeared in books and magazines. Her large portfolio Paros’ Church of a Hundred Doors: 1700 Years was published as a book (Adam/Enosis), in 1997. Elizabeth works in the tradition of Steiglitz and his followers Strand, Weston, and Adams, though most of her work – despite large formats and fine darkroom technique – does not resemble theirs. In addition to the church portfolio, she has produced the major portfolios “Heroes of the Soil” (Parian agriculture) and “Stone Translucence” (Parian marble). She is also known for her portraits, landscapes, seascapes (above and below the surface), still-lifes, and pictures of sculpture. She has also published travel writing and essays. Since 1974 Elizabeth has been teaching Camera and Darkroom and History of Photography at the Aegean Center for the fine arts. Although a recent stroke has curtailed her activities, she is still at it.

JEFFREY CARSON was born in 1944. A New Yorker, he graduated from Stuyvesant High School and NYU (English Literature). In 1970 he moved with his wife to Paros, and a few years later started teaching at the Aegean Center, where he still works. He has published many articles, reviews, poems, and essays in newspapers, periodicals, and books. He has published two volumes of poetry, two of translation, one of literary criticism, and two travel guides. His poems, essays, and translations have appeared in anthologies and other collections. On Paros he has also been active as a pianist, composer, and music teacher, and participated in many performances.
