It’s not if creative block will strike, just when. So, how does one get unstuck? Keep shooting they say… No assignments? Shoot for yourself!
Join APA San Diego for the first of a series: The Anatomy of a Personal Project – and learn how to rekindle the spark that got you into this racket in the first place.
Philipp will share personal work, strategies to overcome the demons of self-doubt induced inertia, and how to get back out into the world.
Temporal and spatial themes lie at the heart of Rittermann’s photographic practice. His imagery encompasses nocturnal scenes of industry, pristine landscape, and most recently, installations of large-scale transparencies, which surround the viewer.
Born and raised in Lima, Perú, Rittermann lived in Germany and Spain
before immigrating to the United States in the early ’80s. His work is held in over one hundred public private, and corporate collections, including MoMA, NY, SFMoMA, CA, MFA, TX, Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France, and many others.
Rittermann has been teaching photography for over thirty years in the USA and abroad. He exhibits in national, and international venues, and was honored with a mid-career survey at the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego, which published the monograph Navigating by Light. In 2011, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego exhibited large-scale works from Emperor’s River, a photographic project he conducted in China. Emperor’s River has traveled to several museums across the country.
