WESTPORT, Conn. -- Award-winning photographer and journalist Bill Barnett will make an audio-visual presentation Tuesday entitled “Vietnam; A Photographer’s Stories" to the Appalachian Mountain Club.
The presentation will be at The Saugatuck Congregational Church, 245 Post Road East, Westport. Doors open, wine, appetizers, pasta, salad and desserts will start at 6.30 p.m. and the presentation is from 7.30-8.30 p.m. AMC members and nonmembers are welcome to attend.
The cost is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Participants are asked to bring along a dessert to share if they can. Pay at the door. For more information and directions, go to www.ct-amc.org or e-mail Eleanor Sasso at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Barnett will explore the country of Vietnam almost 40 years after the Vietnam War ended. Six different parts of the country and a wide variety of photographic locations will be included. Approximately 250 still images, video clips, live narration, locally recorded sounds, and music are blended to tell multimedia stories from a visit to modern Vietnam.
Barnett’s interest in photography began in high school, but really started to develop after he finished graduate school, moved to Connecticut, and joined his first camera club in 1969.
He has earned numerous awards in local competitions; and is a member of the Photographic Society of America, the New Haven Camera Club and the Connecticut Association of Photographers.
In the last few years he has been pursuing a hybrid approach to his photography where stills, video clips, and sound files are combined to create essays and travel presentations with more production values than is possible using only still photographs.
