Friends of Photography Lecture: Konstanty Kulik

Friday, January 21, 2022, 6:00 p.m.
The John C. and Sally S. Morley Family Foundation Lecture Hall

Friends of Photography and Asian Art Society members are invited to a presentation by virtual reality movie director and cinematographer Konstanty Kulik, who is coming to Cleveland from Poland to explain how cutting-edge photographic technology—photogrammetry, LiDAR scanning, aerial drone shots—can make time travel possible. In Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain, this technology is used to take the viewer to ancient Cambodia and reveal its heritage through works of art envisioned in the finest detail. Kulik and his team helped create the amazing immersive and mixed-reality presentations of the Cambodian landscape and sacred space that are part of this groundbreaking exhibition. Attendees are encouraged to experience the technology in person by viewing the exhibition before Konstanty’s talk. Click here to reserve tickets to see the exhibition once it opens on November 14. Exhibition tickets are going quickly, so reserve your today! Tickets are free for CMA members.

Friends of Photography and Asian Art Society members will receive a digital invitation.
