I also had the chance to see one of my biggest inspirations, Olivia Parker, talk as well. Although she did not discuss much of the concept behind her work, she did talk about her process and the transition she's been making from analog to digital.
Henry Horenstein was the other highlight of my conference experience. Sadly, he did not give a lecture but he did sit down for a book signing. Luckily, I was able to get a copy of Anamalia and have that signed.
The photo overload doesn't stop here, tomorrow I'll be going to the Milwaukee Art Museum in great company to check out a Nan Goldin exhibition.
