In a free lecture open to the public, Harvey will speak about her photography, which has been called “visual fiction” or “magic realism.” “Storytelling through Photography” will occur from 6 to7 p.m. at The Chalet, on the Sebago Lake campus in Standish. Her visit, generously funded by the Maine Arts Commission, Morton Kelly Charitable Trust, and the Robert and Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Trust, will also include outreach to high schools in the Lakes Region.
During Harvey’s time at Saint Joseph’s College, Bonny Eagle High School and Windham High School, students will visit campus for workshops and engage in “mind mapping,” discuss visual storytelling, and then use the campus as their backdrop for photo shoots. Saint Joseph’s College BFA majors, will serve as studio assistants and help mentor the high school students. They will also assist with post-production printing in the college’s Mac Lab and exhibit students’ work.
