Lecture by Bill Hunt, The Ten Most Exciting Photographers I Learned about this Year

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public, seating is first come, first served;

“A self-described champion of photography, W.M. “Bill” Hunt will engage the INFOCUS audience with his list of the 10 most exciting photographers he learned about this year. Hunt is passionate and unpredictable. He likes to emphasize the “de-light” in photography. For 40 years, Hunt has been a collector, dealer (Hasted Hunt, Ricco/Maresca), curator, writer, teacher (SVA, Aperture and ICP), and story-teller. His book The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious was published in 2011 by Aperture in the US, Thames & Hudson in the UK, and as L’Oeil Invisible by Actes Sud in France and selected by most of the Top Ten lists. He is working on a number of new projects while he continues to write and lecture, review portfolios, judge competitions, and serve on the boards of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and The Center for Photography at Woodstock. And, he is a pretty funny guy (self-described).”
