You as an Artist: A Conversation with PhotoVision Instructor-Anne Geddes!

You as an Artist: A Conversation with PhotoVision Instructor-Anne Geddes!

Posted on Friday, February 10th by Abby in New Arrivals

PhotoVision’s Year of Inspiration continues with the release of “You as an Artist” with Anne Geddes on Monday, February 13th.

Anne inspires us with her take on being an artist, truly owning your work and giving it a sense of importance.  She disputes the idea that “everyone’s a photographer” and encourages you to see past such a simplified concept so that you are inspired to, in her words, “rise above that vacuous imagery and create a timeless piece.”

You can look forward to her passionate conversation on PRINT. The Movement with PPA’s Director of Education, Angela Kurkian. The two discuss the importance of printing in photography and the role it plays in valuing your imagery and yourself as an artist. To learn more about PRINT. The Movement, visit our website at http://printmovement.org/

 Anne Geddes, one of the world’s most respected photographers, creates images that are iconic, multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed, and beloved.

A global ambassador for children, Anne, as well as having her own Philanthropic Trust, is proud to be the Global Advocate for the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, an Ambassador Volunteer for the March of Dimes and an Ambassador for the GSK global awareness campaign for meningococcal disease.  

Anne’s imagery has been published in over 84 countries, and in 24 languages. Anne has recently released a new series of photographs based on the signs of the Western Zodiac. 2017 will see the release of a comprehensive retrospective of her work, published by Taschen.
