Matthew Gamber is a photographer who lives and works in Worcester, Massachusetts. His most recent project, "Lost Color of God and Man is a generative work recreating the early color experiments of Leopold Godowsky Jr. and Leopold Mannes, professional musicians and amateur scientists. Based on archival research, new images were made in locations where the inventors had worked on their initial tests, reimagining the synthesis of colors the inventors experienced during their decade-long collaboration." Gamber's ongoing photographic reserarch whimsically captures the development of Kodak color film, reimagining the way we look at the history and ongoing evolution of the photographic practice.
Gamber is an Assistant Professor in the Visual Arts Department at the College of the Holy Cross, having previously taught at Lesley University College of Art and Design, Boston College, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Savannah College of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He has also previously worked on archive and digitization projects with Harvard University and the Boston Public Library for Digital Commonwealth.
Extra Curricular Studio Series is curated by Liz Zito and aims to highlight a daily studio practice outside the MFA setting. Optional closed critiques are offered so students can further explore components of developing their career while getting feedback on their current practice.
