Patrick Nagatani
March 8 to 19, 2009

Public Lecture:
March 11th Wednesday @ 6:00 PM
UOH Manoa Art Building Auditorium

Patrick Nagatani is an established photographer and professor emeritus at the University of New Mexico.  Patrick Nagatani’s long and eminent career can be compared to that of a magician.  His images are spellbinding: full of color, multiple layers, wonder and whimsy.  But with a dexterous slight of hand, he reveals the fictions we call history and the blind faith we often have in science.  Whatever Nagatani is photographing --  people, subways, internment camps, excavations, nuclear test sites --  he concerns himself with exposing the paradoxical relationship of reality and illusion.
