Photography workshop with Sandra Phillips in Auckland

Following the successful photography workshop held last year at Auckland's AUT University - St Paul Street Gallery, with now NYC MoMA curator Quentin Bajac and Pieter Hugo, this year in August, Sandra Phillips Curator of Photography at San Francisco MoMA will be coming to Auckland.

Sandra has been photography curator at SFMoMA since 1987 and is one of the most influential curators in the medium working today. She has maintained SFMoMA's position as having one of the most active departments
of photography anywhere. Sandra has been responsible for a host of exhibitions including those involving William Klein, Daido Moriyama, Diane Arbus, Larry Sultan, and most recently Rineke Dijkstra and Garry Winogrand.  She is an empowering teacher and an engaging personality.

Sandra Phillips will also be in Auckland as guest and key-note speaker for the Auckland Art Fair, where the focus this year is on photography. The Art Fair opens Wednesday August 7. The photography workshop runs over 2 days, Saturday August 10 and Sunday 11 August, and will be presented in AUT’s
new state of the art digital design facility. Workshop attendees will receive a complimentary pass to the Auckland Art Fair so that they can go to the panel discussion with Sandra Phillips and Auckland Art Gallery senior curator Ron Brownson on the afternoon of Thursday August 8.

This is a unique opportunity to have your work reviewed by and learn, first hand, from one of photography's most iconic personalities.

There is a limited number of places for the workshop and already there is a high level of interest. If you wish to attend or have any questions please contact me without delay at
