"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow."
The drive to make photographs is something that unites us as a community. We feel Imogen Cunningham's excitement of thinking about tomorrow's picture and sharing her passion informs our lives. What we may not know is how to take that next step. This fall, the Northeast Chapter of SPE will host a virtual conference. Our title refers to the uncertain, the ambiguous; the next photograph one will make, the meaning of a single image, the path of one's life. On Nov. 4 and 5, we will come together to learn more about the work of two successful artists. Nona Faustine will talk about her exciting current project in a presentation moderated by Justine Kurland, and Odette England will speak about her prodigious work in book form. And, to remind us where the excitement begins, we have invited six graduate students to discuss their work in the quick but demanding PechKucha format.
Years ago, a good friend told me I was lucky. I asked her why. She said because you have photography. Are you lucky? Please join us to share our good fortune, passion, and community, which cannot happen when we are alone.
