Best known for his “Hopper Meditations” series, Richard Tuschman creates miniature diorama stages into which he digitally inserts human actors to create lush, atmospheric and psychologically charged depictions of ordinary lives. Tuschman will discuss his practice and his current project, Once Upon A Time in Kazimierz, an open-ended novella told in still photographs.
