Scanning Dead Birds: Celebrating Unconventional Photography In The Triangle

Photographers Bryce Lankard, Jim Lee and Leah Sobsey talk about the Click! Triangle Photography Festival

From scanning dead birds to the photo that got away, the Click! Triangle Photography Festival gives a snapshot of the local photography scene.

It includes more than 60 events at more than 30 venues throughout October.

Host Frank Stasio talks with three photographers involved with the festival: Bryce Lankard, Jim Lee and Leah Sobsey.

Lankard leads an open forum called “Photographic Fish Tales: Stories of landing the big one & ones that got away” on October 20 at 7 p.m. at The Carrack in Durham. 

Lee and Sobsey are part of “The Scanners,” an exhibit also at The Carrack that uses a scanner as an alternative approach to photography. “The Scanners” has an opening reception Friday during Third Friday Durham from 6-9 p.m., and the exhibit runs through October 24.
