Local photographer Barry Phipps will present a lecture and slideshow of work from his Iowa Photographs series at FilmScene this Thursday, Sept. 4 at 6 p.m.

Phipps and his wife relocated to Iowa City in 2012 after living in Chicago for more than two decades. Soon after arriving, Phipps began taking day trips around Iowa and photographing small towns and rural landscapes across the state. During his lecture, Phipps will show images from recent excursions along with select pieces from the last two years of this project.

“This series is not intended to be a view of Iowa, but to be a collection of photographs made from Iowa through my travels inside the arbitrary state lines of this Midwestern landscape,” Phipps writes in the Iowa Photographs show catalogue. “These are first and foremost compositions made from materials discovered.”

On Sept. 5 from 6-8 p.m., Hudson River Gallery will host an opening for Iowa Photographs, on view through Sept. 30.
