Photo Camp is a unique, educational experience, presented by Sony and Aperture Foundation, that will take place on consecutive weekends in New York and Los Angeles during April. These 3-day events are designed to foster community and new learning opportunities for local university photography students, utilizing Sony’s strengths in technology and Aperture’s commitment to encouraging excellence. Sony Artisans of Imagery will lead hands-on workshops on the theme “The Culture of NOW” at both Paper Chase Press in Los Angeles and Aperture Gallery and Bookstore in New York. An exhibition of select images from the workshop will be on view at Aperture Gallery this summer.
