Sandor, and Steve will teach us about storytelling with our images. They will show us some examples of their work and the stories behind the captures.
Sandor Bodo: Born in Budapest, Hungary of artistic parents, the young Sandor was carried under wraps and on shoulders as the Bodo’s fled Hungary during the Uprising of 1956, eventually to resettle in Nashville, Tennessee. Even as a lad, Bodo was always involved in making of images and objects of art. Undergraduate work at Brown University brought Bodo up to Providence in 1971. After securing a BA concentration in Fine Art at Brown, he extended his education in England at Sheffield Polytechnic School of Art and Design and with an MFA in Photography from the Royal College of Art in London in 1978. He returned to Providence to live and work and since 1996 has been a staff photographer at the Providence Journal Bulletin where his images and videos can be seen daily.
