Join W.M. (Bill) Hunt for a one-day workshop intended for photographers wishing to learn from a non-photographer who has been looking at and talking about images for forty years. Hunt is a longtime collector, curator, and consultant who has been teaching for more than two decades. Participants are asked to put together a portfolio of at least five photographs made by others, images they believe reflect their taste, are influential to them, or provoke them. The workshop will focus on influences, how to look at photographs, considerations for analyzing them, and tips for being articulate about them.
W. M. Hunt is a frequent lecturer on the art of collecting and an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts, New York. An earlier, critically acclaimed exhibition of his collection was launched at Les Rencontres d’Arles Photographie in 2005 before traveling to the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland, and FOAM, Amsterdam.
