Learn how to sustain your ongoing visual story with New York photographer and curator Rene Perez. In this talk, Rene will analyze how his life-long fascination with the magic hour became a long-term photo project. Following his successful In Twilight exhibit at the Leica Store New York SoHo, he will discuss which artists influenced his work and vision as well as how many of the photos in this portfolio that were conceived and executed. The concept of the long-term project will be broken down so that anyone can build on their personal passions with patience, persistence and determination to create a dynamic portfolio.
