This special Tuesday evening lecture is a personal, in-depth and behind the scenes tour of the images in photographer Randall Slavin’s project “REACH: 24 portraits by Randall Slavin to benefit the CTAOP.” REACH is a collection of previously unseen portraits of some of the most influential names of our time including Clint Eastwood, Eddie Vedder, Kobe Bryant and Bill Clinton. Theron will introduce Slavin and re-join the discussion during the Q&A portion of the presentation.
Theron serves as a United Nations Messenger of Peace and launched the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) in 2007 with the aid of the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Born in Hollywood, California, Randall Slavin struck up a friendship with the owner of a local photography studio. It was at that studio where he learned the basics of photography. Slavin’s photography debuted in the New York Times Magazine and his work has appeared in GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone and many others. His first exhibit was held in Paris in 2008.
The event takes place tonight, October 11, at 6:30pm at the Annenberg Space for Photography, Century Park, 2000 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles. For ticket information, click here.
