U.S. Embassy Hosting Free Photography Lectures with Bob Kiss

Photographers and photography enthusiasts should head to Cin Cin by the Sea this Saturday, March 23. That is where the United States Embassy will be hosting the first of two free lectures to be given by renowned Barbados-based, American photographer Bob Kiss.

Saturday’s lecture is entitled On Portraiture and Kiss will discuss techniques he has used to take iconic photographs of such luminaries as Jodie Foster, Oscar de la Renta, Donald Trump and Hubert de Givenchy. The lecture is free and open to the public, and will begin promptly at 10 am.

The second lecture, Why Black and White Photography, will be held on Saturday, April 13 at 10 am at the Barbados Museum. In this lecture, Kiss will focus on the skills needed to create impactful black and white images in both digital and film.

Bob Kiss spent twenty years working as a New York City-based fashion and advertising photographer.  His work has appeared in Paris Vogue, Town and Country Magazine and Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, among others. Kiss’s photos have appeared in exhibitions at some of the world’s top galleries, including the Whitney Museum of American Art which included two of his Interview covers in their Andy Warhol Retrospective in 1997.
