LECTURE | Wish You Were Here: Peter and Chase Guttman


They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, but sometimes both the tree and the apple hitch up their roots and skip off to see the world. Author, journalist, and photographer Peter Guttman has traveled to more than 200 countries on all seven continents, creating a body of work that explores the world's cultural and geographic diversity. His teenage son, Chase, has so far traveled to more than 45 countries and every American state.

On Thursday June 5, the Guttmans will speak about and share photographs from their global excursions, discuss their separate journeys in image making, and their evolving partnership. The lecture will take place at 6 p.m. in the Dryden Theatre at Eastman House (900 East Avenue), and will be followed by a book signing. Admission is free to members, $6 for the general public, and $3 for students. For more information, call 271-3361 or visit
