Please join the American Society of Media Photographers Chicago/Midwest for an artist talk with Mariah Karson and Industry meetup at Firecat on Wednesday August 9th from 6:30-9:30pm. Mariah will be discussing her project, “American Legion,” which docuements the lives of Legion members and the impact veterans and posts have on communities. Between 2014-2016 Karson traveled to four American Legion posts in towns with populations under 1,000 to photograph and interview Legionnaires. The project has been compiled into a 252 page hardcover book and gallery exhibition at Firecat Projects. The book will be available to purchase at Firecat. This event is open to the public, so come out to meet photographers, producers, stylists, and other motion/ still image makers. The Artist Talk will start promptly at 7:15pm and last around 30 minutes. Cash bar donation.
If you can’t make it out to the event, you can purchase the “American Legion” book at http://www.mariahkarson.com/americanlegion/
