Workshop: “How I Look at Pictures” with W.M. Hunt

Bill Hunt

Photo London is pleased to present a unique opportunity to join a one-day workshop given by W.M. – Bill – Hunt. This special event is intended for people who have a keen interest in photography, and who want to educate themselves in the visual language of images and the collecting of photography. This workshop is for photography lovers—artists, writers, collectors—anyone who wants to be sharper and more confident in defining their own taste and being articulate about it.

The workshop offers an insight into Hunt’s personal collection – how he came into collecting and what he chooses to collect. He will share personal stories of the challenges he faces when finding exceptional work in an age when we are so bombarded with images. He will showcase some of the best photographers working today and encourage his participants to share their photographic passions, encouraging discussion of what makes these works exceptional. Participants are asked to bring copies of three images they think are great. These will be part of the conversation for the last third of the class.

The workshop will run from 11am – 3pm, and will break for a working lunch which is included in the ticket price. You can book your place here.

His book “The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious” (Thames & Hudson, 2011) was the basis for a large show that debuted at the Rencontres d’Arles, France, then toured to the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland; FOAM, Amsterdam; and the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York.
