W.M. Hunt: How I Look At Photographs

  Start Date March 1
  Time 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
  Instructor W.M. Hunt

Join W. M. (Bill) Hunt for a three hour workshop intended for photographers, collectors, or anyone interested in photography, 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 bring an open mind and to put together a portfolio of at least five great 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. Hunt has given this workshop in New York at the ICP and Aperture.

“Hunt uses language clearly, colorfully, and intelligently. His stories—along with the whys and wherefores—were extremely valuable.”

“Hearing Mr. Hunt talk about his relationship to photographs and the pictures he likes was enlightening.”
