Photographic Art: 'Scientific
Form Of Visual Expression'
Photography and painting
can not De equated, accord
ing to Jerald C. Maddox. as
sistant director of Sheldon Art
Maddox spoke Sunday after
noon in a talk entitled "Amer
ican Photography The Six
ties". He discussed the photo
graphs now on display in the
"Some people feel that
photography is equal to paint
ing, sculpture ana etching.
Maddox said. "However, it is
rather a unique approach to
visual communication. This
visual communication Is t h e
only point in common be
tween these art forms."
"The difference lies basical
ly in the way photos are
made," he continued. "Pho
tography is mechanical and
scientific. All Its techniques
can be measured and ex
plained. Painting, sculpture,
etc. are the handmade work
of the artist."
Maddox said he feels that
photography is a much "pur
er" form of art. "Most art Is
in the doing, but photography
has written techniques to that
processes can be easily dupli
cated. Photographic art,
therefore, depends entirely on
how the photographer i e e t
things not on how he repro
duces them."
Concerning the intrinsic
value of photos, Maddox said
that most photos are not val
uable in themselves, but rath
er for their historical impor
tance, such as the early
daguerreotypes. They might
also be valuable if the nega
tives are destroyed so that
additional prints can not be
"Most photography tends
toward the realistic image,
though there is some abstract
photography produced," Mad
dox stated. "Abstract photog
raphy is even more difficult
to explain than abstract paint
ing. The painting can be ex
plained in the interpretation
of physical things. Abstract

Navy Officer
To Encourage
New Enlistments
A Navy WAVE officer from
Minneapolis will be on cam

The woman officer, Lt. El
eanor Kowalczyk, who just re

Naval Station near San Juan,
Puerto Rico, will speak in the
Nebraska Union from 9 a.m.

"There are as many types
of photography as there are
photographers," Maddox said.
"This is so because the
techniques of photography
can be conquered quickly, as
compared to other forms of
visual communication. The
photographer can therefore
reach the point of individual
expression earlier. Often you
can find out as much about
the photographer as the im
age he creates by studying
the photograph."
"What you pay for in buy
