I'm sure you have received a flood of emails about yesterday, but let me add my kudos for giving us the joy of hearing David Perry's presentation. In my estimation, the best program I have ever enjoyed at the Garden Club!
In response to: In The Garden of Your Imagination, presented at the Santa Barbara Art Museum for the Santa Barbara Garden Club.
As a photographer who has communicated through pictures for a lifetime, my slide lectures are all lushly illustrated with photographs, typography and intentional design. Friends have told me that I pack two or more times as many slides into a 45 minute, or one hour talk as many of them do, which surprised me at first and then just became a part of the way my stories get told. I can't imagine asking my audience to look at the same picture for two minutes while I ramble on and on. I respect their ability to handle more than that, and I feel it helps me pack a more compelling, energetic picnic for us to share during our limited time together.
David Perry is a Seattle-based photographer who has been photographing assignments for books, magazines, corporate annual reports and national ad campaigns for more than four decades, in nearly every corner of the world. He is an inspirational teacher and captivating storyteller with a keen knack for observation and a distinct twinkle in his eye. His reverence for food, farmers, gardens and the people who tend them is apparent in the pictures he makes and his playful, sometimes irreverent manner of speaking about them keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. Onstage he is a spirited, dynamic speaker who makes his presentation topics memorable and relevant to audiences through the ample use of clever graphics, breathtaking imagery, playful humor, and by never, ever talking down to them.
