Visual artist and educator Corinne Botz will discuss her book, “Haunted Houses,” a collection of photographs and oral histories about more than eighty haunted buildings throughout the country (including several in Maine), as well as her project “Milk Factory,” an unconventional portrait of motherhood that explores the little-known and commonly unseen lactation room, during a virtual presentation at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 25, hosted by Bakery Photo Collective in Portland.

Botz is a visual artist and educator based in New York whose practice encompasses photography, writing, and filmmaking. A sustained focus on space, gender and the body, particularly relating to women’s experiences, is central to her practice. Her published books combining photography and writing include “The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death” and “Haunted Houses.”

Botz’s photographs have been internationally exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Illinois, as well as in Germany and Amsterdam. She has had solo exhibitions in New York City and Washington D.C. She earned her BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art and her MFA from Milton Avery School of the Arts, Bard College. She has received grants from New York Foundation for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation and is on the faculty of International Center of Photography and John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY).
