Your Picture on the Page: Kathy Ryan One-on-One with W.M. Hunt, at Room 1E12
“Your Picture” will celebrate Kathy Ryan’s many achievements and speak directly to how she discovers, cultivates and commissions work for the magazine. Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at the process Ryan uses when seeking work for the magazine, learning how to best present their own editorial and photojournalism work. Ryan makes very few public appearances, so this is a unique opportunity to see her in action and to find out how a major industry creative works. There will also be time for questions from the audience.

Kathy Ryan, the longtime director of photography at the New York Times Magazine, has been a pioneer of combining fine art photography and photojournalism in the pages of that publication. During her time there, the magazine has been recognized with numerous photography awards, including National Magazine Awards in both 2011 and 2012. In 2012, Ryan received the Royal Photographic Society’s annual award for Outstanding Service to Photography. Under Ryan’s leadership, the magazine commissions the world’s best photographers, a selection of whose work was published in The New York Times Magazine Photographs (Aperture, 2011), edited by Ryan. She also lectures on photography (she gave the 2012 Karsh Lecture in Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) and serves as a mentor at the School of Visual Arts, New York.
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 exhibition of his collection launched to critical acclaim at the Rencontres d’Arles Photographie in 2005 before traveling to the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland, and FOAM, Amsterdam.
