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.

About Philipp:

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.

EAT, DRINK & MERRY MERRY


SAVE THE DATE!

APA | SD’s 12th Annual Holiday Party & Print Exchange
is Friday, December 12th, 2014.

Yes, the holiday season is upon us again. The days are shorter, summer is nothing but memory and it’s time for the annual APA | San Diego Holiday Party and Print Exchange.

This is where you drink some better than average booze and walk away with a print created by one of California’s best photographers. Think about it: the price for a unique work of art is simply one of your prints.

Join us and a benevolent jury of your peers at what is now a venerable tradition. Arrive at the Harrison Photographic Studio with a loose print and depart in the wee hours filled with winter cheer, your heart full of holiday spirit, and your hands clutching a wonderful new photograph.

Like Christmas itself: it’s an age-old practice, a custom, and one of the wonderful things American Photographic Artists does for the San Diego creative community.

WHEN: Friday, December 12th, 6:30 PM

WHERE: Harrison Photographic Studios
930 West Ivy Street | Little Italy | San Diego 92101

COST: Free to all
