SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - The Wittenberg University Departments of Art and Communication welcome guest lecturer Clay Enos, a celebrity and commercial photographer, to speak about his career and the art/business of photography during a public lecture at 7 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 25. in Bayley Auditorium in the Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center.
Having worked in commercial photography for more than two decades, Enos also enjoys making street portrait photography and photojournalistic work as he travels. He is especially interested in how photography relates to food health and sustainability, with special regard to organizations that support sustainable fair trade coffee.
In 2007, Director Zach Snyder hired Enos to document his film adaptation of “Watchmen” for Warner Brothers. This resulted in “Watchmen Portraits”, which is dedicated to 220 on-set street studio-style portraits made during production. Enos later collaborated with Snyder to document the filming of “Sucker Punch” (2011), “Man of Steel” (2013), and, the soon to be released “300: Rise of an Empire” (2014).
Enos holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Photography and Visual Arts from Ithaca College. He studied further with the VII photographers Jim Nachtwey, Gary Knight, and Antonin Kratochvil.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Art, the Department of Communication, and the Faculty Endowment Fund Board, the lecture is free and open to the public.
