The lecture will focus on the technical aspects of Lionel Wendt’s photography, with an analysis of some of his photographs in order to help people understand his work better.

Thirty  selected photographs taken by Lionel Wendt himself will be exhibited alongside the lecture. The exhibition will continue held from November 11-18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Both events will be at the Lionel Wendt Art Centre.
