Renowned photographer, editor and professor Fred Ritchin addressed a crowd of about 300 people in Webb Auditorium Nov. 3 as one of the featured speakers of RIT’s Caroline Werner Gannett Project “Visionaries in Motion V” series. Ritchin, author of After Photography and In Our Own Image: The Coming Revolution in Photography, explored how photography and other media have been transformed by the digital age, the new ways of thinking about photography, the future for the photography profession in the “Facebook world,” new problems that the digital age poses and the impact and usefulness of the photographic image in democracy and today’s society. Next up for the series is Drew Berry, award-winning biomedical animator, who speaks Dec. 8.
