Join artist Bill Armstrong and collector W. M. Hunt for a conversation on color photography at the Aperture Foundation. Taking inspiration from the book, I Send You This Cadmium Red, which features correspondence between critic John Berger and artist John Christie, Hunt and Armstrong have initiated a dialogue about color in photography. Starting with Armstrong’s technical overview of color photography and its history, as well as Hunt’s observations about color and its empathic power, the exchange is a means for the longtime friends to challenge each other through their ideas.
For their conversation at Aperture, they will offer thoughts about how color behaves; read from some of their written exchanges with each other; and take the audience on an unexpected and fresh journey through interpreting color in photographs.
