Covid has caused all of us to be creative in ways we have not been before. Because it is not currently possible for Monalog™ to schedule in-person photographic events, the Collective will be hosting a series of exciting virtual events until we and our fellow black and white analog photographers can get together.

Your Covid-19 Photographic Life is the first of Monalog’s™ virtual events. This Zoom-based seminar will be an intimate discussion with Monalog Collective members Michael Marks, Paul Margolis and David Haas concerning the photographic challenges they have faced during the Covid-19 pandemic. Monalog Collective member Drew Wagner will host the event. Presentations will include:

  • Member background, type of photography, description of their work, format and materials used
  • Each member’s story of what they have done photographically during the pandemic and how the pandemic has affected their the work and creativity
  • What motivates each member to create during the these difficult times, and what have they done outside of making and printing photographs to “keep their head in the game” and maintain interest in creating and being creative

Total program time will be approximately 60 minutes.

This and future events will take place on Zoom and will be free of charge.

Those who register to attend will receive an email with a link to join the lecture prior to the event start time.
