Mathew Duman is a photographer, author and graphic designer, and author of “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities.“ Armed with only a camera, a sense of humor and a host of frequent flyer miles, Mathew embarked on a “grotesque safari,” traveling to 10 universities around the country to photograph the unique grotesques and gargoyles roosting on academic buildings with a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic.

 

Mathew presents an illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history and humor these campuses have to offer.

The grotesque 10 schools are: The University of Pennsylvania; Bryn Mawr College; Yale University ; Trinity College in Hartford, Ct.; The City College of New York; Duke University; Northwestern University; Princeton University; The University of Chicago & Washington University in St. Louis.
