Master photographer Santi Visalli to speak, exhibit at CI


Santi Visalli and his camera were there when the Beatles played on the “Ed Sullivan Show.” He was there when Martin Luther King Jr. spoke on the steps of the United Nations. He was there when President Richard Nixon sat down with the Soviet Union’s General Secretary, Leonid Breshnev, to sign the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty.

A photographer who captured images of five sitting U.S. Presidents, movie stars, political icons and the soul of the 1960s and ‘70s, to name just some of his work, will speak at CI about his life, and the 106,964 images he will donate to the University.

“A Life in Pictures,” which will include about 30 pieces from the collection, will be on display in the John Spoor Broome Library and the second floor art gallery from Nov. 16, 2015 through Feb. 12, 2016 with a reception and artist’s talk on Thursday, Nov. 19 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Read the full article about the exhibit.
