Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the Todd Gustavson lecture on the Kodak DCS today at noon...but for a different reason than I envisioned. Turns out my son and his girlfriend are arriving for their Winter visit today. I knew they were coming "at the end of the month," but I didn't know which day until this morning.
So I'll be (happily!) doing housework and shopping.
But if you're going, look for this man:
That's my friend Earl Dunbar, who is a Rochesterian and was planning to go to the lecture before I even mentioned it.
If you want to connect, Earl says he'll be in the Gift Shop/Café half an hour before the lecture starts at noon. Look for the guy with the crutch (he had polio in his youth) and a Domke F5 bag with a Rolleiflex in it. The Curtis Theater is adjacent to the Café at the George Eastman House, so it's a handy place to meet. Todd says he'd be happy to have lunch after the lecture, and you could very well meet some of the other pioneers of digital photography as well, such as Steve Sasson and Jim McGarvey. Earl would be happy to meet other TOP readers.
Sorry I can't be there, but next time! I need to become a Member of the George Eastman Museum so I get notices about this kind of thing more in advance.
