Once a year Tom Persinger, who organises the f295 Symposium in Pittsburgh, throws a one-day event on the east coast that’s sponsored by B&H. This year it’s on January 18th at B&H’s Event Space and the speakers will include Alida Fish, Craig J. Barber, Dan Estabrook, France Scully Osterman, Jo Babcock, Joy Goldkind, Michelle Bates, Robert Hirsch and Tom Persinger. I was fortunate enough to meet many of these speakers in Pittsburgh last year and know that it will be an amazing event.

From the B&H website:

Over the course of the past year, f295 has been investigating the art of photography through the voices of practicing photographers. The f295 seminar at B&H is a very special day which features 10 artists discussing their ideas, images, rationale, and inspiration. Each presentation will also include reflections on how the three main elements of photography – Light, Time, and Apparatus impact their work. There will be time at the end of the day for questions.

This is a rare opportunity to engage in conversation with some of today’s most ambitious and accomplished photographers using a 21st Century approach in their work.

f295 is pleased to announce that the Camera Club of New York will be hosting an exhibition entitled ‘f295: 21st Century Photography’ from January 16 – 20, 2009. There will be a reception with the artists on Saturday, January 17 from 7-9pm. This show coincides with the f295 Seminar at B&H Photo on January 18 and features work from a selection of artists who have been involved with previous f295 events.

I have one image in the show, a platinum-palladium print from a Diana camera negative, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Illinois (see previous post). The CCNY is at The Arts Building, 336 West 37th Street, Suite 206, New York, NY 10018-4212.
