ROCKPORT — The latest online lecture of a weekly alumni lecture series is scheduled to feature photographer David Hilliard from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27.

He will discuss his four-decade-long project of photographing his father, ending during the pandemic, “My Father’s Life in Pictures: A Collaboration.” The lecture is hosted by Maine Media Workshops + College Provost Elizabeth Greenberg.

Hilliard for years has been actively documenting his life and the lives of those around him, recording events and attempting to create order in a sometimes chaotic world. While his photographs focus on the personal, the familiar and the simply ordinary, the work strikes a balance between autobiography and fiction.

In this lecture, Hilliard will examine the joys and challenges of his decades-long photographic collaboration with his dad and the commitment to see the project through until the very end.
