Opening Saturday, September 12th, from 12:30PM - 1:30PM
This lunchtime artist talk is FREE and open to the public and will be presented via Zoom.
In conjunction with the 2020 Filter Photo Festival, join us for a conversation between Sasha Wolf and photographer Matthew Pillsbury. They will discuss Pillsbury’s professional practice, both as a fine art photographer and as a photographer for hire.
Sasha Wolf represents emerging and mid-career, fine art photographers. After running the New York photo gallery, Sasha Wolf Gallery, for 10 years, Sasha transitioned back to a private/pop-up model in 2017. Sasha continues her work to place her artist’s photographs in important private and public collections, edit and support their various book and magazine publications, and curate and support their exhibitions. Additionally, Sasha works as a consultant with a larger group of artists as a book and project editor and on other professional practices. Sasha reviews and judges work for leading art institutions, universities, and fairs numerous times a year and lectures and conducts artist’s workshops around the country on professional practices and project development. Sasha’s book, PhotoWork, was published by Aperture in the Fall of 2019 and her Podcast of the same name is now available on all streaming platforms.
