Bill JacobsonBill Jacobson

Photographer and Brown alum Bill Jacobson is best recognized for his ghostly, out of focus images of people. Begun during the height of the AIDS epidemic, the images evoke both loss and the futility of capturing true human likenesses in portraiture and memory.  In recent years, Jacobson has investigated geometry and space —particularly rectangles, which he notes do not exist in nature—in natural and man-made settings.

A lecture by Chris Elphick

Principal Investigator, SHARP (Saltmarsh Habitation and Avian and Research Program)
Associate Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Connecticut

With rising sea levels, tidal marshes and species such as the saltmarsh sparrow that depend on them, face many threats.  This talk will describe the status of tidal marsh birds in the northeast, the ways that marshes are changing, and the role that humans play in protecting coastal ecosystems.
