Casey Kelbaugh, photographer and founder and director of Slideluck Potshow (SLPS), will present a talk regarding photography and community and the way SLPS fosters this. Kelbaugh will discuss SLPS as a non-traditional means of sharing work – outside of the gallery and print media realms – with an international audience. He will also talk about taking an idea and pursuing it relentlessly for 9 years and the thrills, challenges, and benefits to that kind of commitment. A dynamic slideshow will accompany the presentation, highlighting great images from throughout SLPS’s history.
