This April, students in Los Angeles and in New York City created work on two consecutive weekends as part of Photo Camp, a photography workshop presented by Aperture and Sony. The workshop included a day of shooting with Sony Artisans of Imagery and private editing sessions with Aperture staff and friends, highlighting Sony’s strengths in technology and Aperture’s commitment to encouraging excellence. The 72 participants were asked to focus on the theme “The Culture of Now,” and, after a single day of shooting and an additional day of group discussions and one-on-one review sessions, students submitted three images each for possible inclusion in the exhibition.

The exhibition is printed by Gotham Imaging, with ink and paper provided courtesy of Epson. Additional support was provided by D.A.P. | Art Book Press in Los Angeles.

About Sony Artisans of Imagery

Based on synergies between their unique styles of photography and Sony’s line of DSLR cameras, Sony hand-selected six professional photographers to be included in its Artisans of Imagery program. These pro photographers include Nigel Barker, Andy Katz, Me Ra Koh, David McLain, Christina Mittermeier, Brian Smith, and Matthew Jordan Smith. Throughout the year, these photographers have been lecturing and providing educational workshops at U.S. universities and photography festivals. Additionally, their work has been featured in books, editorial content, advertising campaigns, and worldwide exhibitions.
