New York Photo Festival Starts Now
Black Power by Hank Willis Thomas
The third annual New York Photo Festival (NYPH) Kicks off today!
This year the festival features Aperture Presents, a series of panel discussions at St. Ann’s Warehouse, curated by Aperture’s editors. Panels will take place each day from 4:30-5:20 p.m.
The first panel taking place this afternoon will feature artists Justine Reyes, Brian Ulrich, and Hank Willis Thomas presenting their work and experiences securing funding, reviews, fellowships, and grants.
Tomorrow Aperture will bring together Amy Elkins, co-founder of Women in Photography; Ariel Shanberg, executive director of the Center for Photography at Woodstock; and Amy Yenkin, director of Open Society Institute, to offer insight on how artists can better benefit from the various opportunities available to them.
In addition Aperture will present a conversation with photographer Eirik Johnson (whose series of photographs Sawdust Mountain is currently on view at Aperture) and picture editor of Orion magazine, Jason Houston. The four day panel series will conclude with an artist’s talk by 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize runner-up and emerging artist Jowhara AlSaud.
