Join WCC in welcoming Paul Adams as he presents “The Concept Is The Coin of the Realm”. Paul feels a concept should drive the process and not the other way around. He will talk about the relationship between intuition, concept and process. He will share examples of photopolymer photogravure and wet plate collodion. Paul has enjoyed international acclaim for his work and has many unique, powerful, storytelling images to share. This presentation is likely to get you to think outside of the box!

This presentation is in person at Salt Lake City Library (210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT),  on November 30th at 6:30 PM.  Please register. Parking in the garage is free for the first two hours. Bring your parking ticket to the Library main desk to validate.
