Welcome to the Ojai Photo Club
How to Realize Your True Self Through Photography
September 19 7:00PM: The Ojai Photography Club hosts Ojai based photographer Enrico Natali as its guest presenter for September.
Natali has the unique distinction of two careers in photography separated by a period of total immersion in the practice of Zen meditation. In his first photographic career in the 1960s and ‘70s, he began working with his passion for the American urban landscape and the people who live in it. He spent months in the New York City Subway creating a series of stunning black and white images that caught the introspectiveness of commuters in the midst of urban chaos. It was in this series that Natali discovered his vocation as a photojournalist. His groundbreaking solo exhibition in 1969, “New American People,” at the Chicago Institute of Art, witnessed the full scope of life in Detroit at a time of crisis and change. This series was later released in book form as “Detroit 1968.”
