Announcing Our Meet & Greet Series!

Musician, author, photographer and previous Iris Nights lecturer Henry Rollins returns to the Annenberg Space for Photography this Saturday to kick off our Meet & Greet series. This brand new program will allow visitors to interact with photographers, photo editors and other guests at Skylight Studios, our recently opened multi-media venue located directly across from the Space for Photography. Unlike the Iris Nights lectures, the format for each Meet & Greet event will vary by photographer but no matter the format, attendees will have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with the featured guest.

Our first set of Meet & Greet events will include some of the legendary artists featured in Who Shot Rock & Roll: The Film. In addition to Rollins, photographers Ed Colver, Guy Webster and Norman Seeff will be part of our inaugural Meet & Greet slate. Check our weekly Iris Nights enewsletters for details. After the Meet & Greet, stick around to watch Who Shot Rock & Roll: The Film, which screens throughout the day at Skylight Studios.

Rollins' Meet & Greet will take place on Saturday, August 10 from 2-3pm. Rollins has spent over three decades traveling to over 80 countries and always keeps a camera close at hand. During the event, he will discuss his photographic work, share why he goes where he goes and what happens when he gets there. Rollins will also sign copies of one of his book Occupants, which will be available for purchase.

The Meet & Greet series is free, and no reservations are required. Please note that photographers will only sign items available for purchase at Skylight Studios.

August 10 from 2-3pm

Meet & Greet With Ed Colver

We're only two presenters in in our new Meet & Greet series at our Skylight Studios facility and its already beena roaring success. Earlier this month, rocker and photographer Henry Rollins kicked the series off with a terrific talk which he followed up with an informal book signing. Look for video of that event on our website very soon.

Just this past weekend, Who Shot Rock & Roll photographer Ed Colver met with fans for our second Meet & Greet. Click "read more" to see photos from that event. Mark your calendars - our next Meet & Greet (featuring Guy Webster) takes place this Sunday from 1-3pm!

Norman Seeff Returns To The Photography Space

Who Shot Rock & Roll photographer Norman Seeff returns to the Annenberg Space for Photography this Saturday to take part in our new Meet & Greet series at Skylight Studios. But this won't be just any Meet & Greet. Seeff will present a free multimedia lecture to attendees!

A little about the photographer: Ex-medical doctor Seeff emigrated from South Africa to New York in 1968 to pursue a career as a photographer, filmmaker and designer. Three years later he relocated to Los Angeles as Art Director at United Artists Records, where his album cover designs and photography received many Grammy nominations. He established his own studio in 1975 and has worked with hundreds of artists including Tina Turner, Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and Joni Mitchell.

During this Saturday's Meet & Greet, Seeff will give the multimedia lecture, using his remarkable archive of film and video to illustrate how his photography sessions with so many notable artists became a path towards exploring the inner dynamics of creativity.

After his lecture he will answer audience questions and sign copies of his book, Sessions.

Attendance is free. Seating is first-come, first-served. Skylight Studios is located across the park from the Annenberg Space for Photography.
