@ Bil Zelman

Join us for “And Here We Are – A Nature Story” with Bil Zelman at Museum of Photographic Arts on Thursday, September 6, 2018. This is a special one-night event including a photographic talk and presentation in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater.

Photographer Bil Zelman’s evocative monograph “And Here We Are – A Nature Story” examines the current condition of our rapidly changing landscape, the punishing impacts of non-native and invasive species and the fragile places where man and nature collide.

Zelman has traveled extensively from the Amazon River to the Hudson, across the Sonoran Desert, the Mississippi Delta and up through the mountains of British Columbia documenting the beginnings of the Holocene Extinction and the impacts when species are juggled on a global scale. “Each photograph in this series presents its own protagonist in a distinct environment and while every image tells its own cautionary tale, the entire collection of photographs depicts the larger story of humanity’s often overlooked impacts.”

About Bil Zelman:

Photographer Bil Zelman has been on assignment in over 30 countries, shot journalism overseas for VICE and photographed and directed dozens of international fashion and advertising campaigns for well-known brands such as Frye Boots, Coca-Cola, Guinness, and Harley Davidson. His work has been featured in a variety of publications including Rolling Stone and GQ and he’s been selected for Archives Top 200 Photographers Worldwide ten years in a row.

Anatomy of a Personal Project with Phillipp Scholz Rittermann

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.
