An Evening with Acey Harper

Photography today is perhaps one of the easiest mediums in which to become competent. One might even create a masterpiece accidentally, an event not likely to happen in painting, sculpture or music. The great challenge photography presents us with is how to separate ourselves from others who are doing good work. Where do you find the energy and the courage to pursue your idea, your style, your vision? How do you maintain the abandon and enthusiasm you started down the path with? An Evening with Acey Harper. Hear how Acey took all he had learned as an assignment photojournalist and turned it upside down to create the photographs for Private Acts: The Acrobat Sublime, a hardcover book published by Rizzoli . Acey worked as a staff photographer for USA Today before moving into freelance photography, completing assignments for People, Sports Illustrated, Time and many others. Active in the Day in the Life book series, he shot the cover for Day in the Life of Israel and served as director of photography for other titles in the series, choosing and working with some of the best photographers in the world. This program is made possible by a grant from the ASMP Foundation in association with the 2012 FotoWeek DC festival.
