Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream

Join us for an artist talk with photographer Tabitha Soren as she introduces her latest project, Fantasy Life. In 2002, Tabitha Soren first began photographing a group of minor league draft picks for the Oakland A’s—young men coming into the major league farm system straight from high school or college. Fifteen years after that first shoot, Fantasy Life portrays a selection of these stories, gathering together a richly textured series of photographs taken on the field and behind the scenes at games, along with commentaries by each of the players and memorabilia from their lives—from kindergarten-age baseball cards to x-rays of player injuries.
 
Tabitha Soren left a successful career in television in 1999 to start another one as a photographer. She is represented by the Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles. Her book, Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream, will be release by Aperture in Spring 2017.
 
This artist talk will be held in Singer Hall and is free and open to the public. Voluntary donations accepted. Seating is limited, RSVP here.
 

Presented by:
INFOCUS, the Photography Support Group of Phoenix Art Museum
