A picture is worth a thousand words. We take photos throughout our lives to capture still frames of memories that we never want to forget and to capture what we perceive to be beautiful or profound in this world. But what does a memory mean to a person who wasn’t there? Can one person’s experience be interpreted differently by each and every person who views a photo: an image filtered through not only the lens of the camera, but also the lens of human experience? “Snapshot” is a series of scenes which answers these questions by giving us 17 playwrights’ different reactions to Lee Friedlander’s iconic image, Mount Rushmore, South Dakota, 1969. “Snapshot” will be directed by guest artist Bill Bowers, a Broadway actor and mime who has performed across the United States, Canada and Europe.
