Upcoming Conference

Photography: Mentorship and Legacy

Rhode Island School of Design - Providence, RI   |   October 26 - October 27, 2019

Each photographer carries with them the photographers who have gone before - those who were our mentors and educators, and those we never met but who taught us nonetheless. In many ways, these are the first important steps towards building support and community for ourselves.

The 2019 SPE Northeast Chapter Conference will focus on photography's rich tradition of mentorship and legacy, and the ways in which we as educators continue that tradition in our classrooms. We welcome proposals from all photographers, but are particularly excited to see combined proposals from educators and their former students, and other creative takes on the theme.

Call for presentations is open! See information below:
