Aug. 29-Oct. 29
Mind Over Matter
Photography of Arno Rafael Minkkinen
Reception and Lecture: Oct. 6, 5 p.m.
This exhibition incorporates some of Minkkinen's images from the 1970's and 1980's, contemporary and recent work, image murals, and, in a rare move for Minkkinen, selections of his color photography. Minkkinen's photos are striking in their clarity, and though his unique style has barely strayed from its foundational elements, his images never seem redundant, clichéd, or repetitive. According to William Lee Adams, for Arno Rafael Minkkinen, nudity is akin to spirituality. On the topic Minkkinen states that "I don't want to be seen as a nudist. But there is something about how close you get to the act of creation by walking around by yourself in some stretch of forest in Finland, with nothing on, looking for a photograph, climbing rocks and moving around like a monkey. Bared assed and just digging your toes into the soft earth, you really feel like you've been created."
Closed Sundays and Mondays; OPEN – Tues, Thurs, Fri: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed: 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays: 1-5 p.m.
Daytona Beach Campus, Hosseini Center (#1200), Southeast Museum of Photography, Upstairs Gallery

GUEST SPEAKER: HARRISON COONEY
THE WILDLIFE DEFENDERS: TAKING ACTION TO SAVE SPECIES ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION
The Wildlife Defenders is an ongoing project honoring individuals and organizations centered around a common goal: increasing the public's awareness of the practice of poaching. The eventual goal is to eliminate poaching outright–by educating the public through images, articles and social media. Photographer Harrison Cooney will present selections from several bodies of work–The Rhino War, The Next Generation and A Vanishing World–that convey the dire situation of endangered species in South Africa, and document the tireless efforts of those individuals who risk their lives daily to protect and save these vanishing species. Admission is free and open to the public
