Notice from Michael Z. Taylor of Photography at Oregon:

The Last Friday Movie Night for February will be on Feb. 25 and will feature a 78-minute film (Part 1), called Contacts.2: The Renewal of Contemporary Photography.

This is a collection of short commentaries by the following international photographers, using their contact sheets, proofs, prints, or slides to reveal the evolution of their body of work:

Sophie Calle, a French photographer whose work frequently depict human vulnerability and examines identity and intimacy. Her photographic work often includes panels of text of her own writing.

Nancy Goldin, an American photographer whose work often explores LGTBQ bodies and moments of intimacy. Her most notable work is The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1986). She lives and works in New York City, Berlin, and Paris.

Duane Michals, an American photographer whose work makes innovative use of photo-sequences, often incorporating text to examine emotion and philosophy. The imaginative challenge for Michals is about using visual images to convey abstract ideas.

Sarah Moon, a French photographer. Initially a model, she turned to fashion photography in the 1970s. Since 1985, she has concentrated on gallery and film work.

Nobuyoshi Araki, a Japanese photographer known primarily for photography that blends eroticism and bondage in a fine art context.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, a Japanese photographer and architect. He leads the Tokyo-based architectural firm New Material Research Laboratory.
