Olivia Bee to lecture at the Annenberg; Make Art You Want to Make

Photo by Amanda Leigh Smith

On Thursday, July 9th at the Annenberg Space for Photography, photo girl extraordinaire, Olivia Bee will be sharing her advice on making photographs without compromising creativity. Her lecture, Making Art You Want To Make, accompanies the Annenberg’s current exhibition, Emerging, which presents the images of more than 90 emerging photographers from around the world, including miss Bee.

Olivia Bee, a Oregonian turned Brooklynite, photographs the intimate moments of her young adult life. While she has turned more to commercial work, working with Nike, Converse, Zeit Magazin and Foam Magazine, Olivia continues to do more personal work that focuses on the beauty of memories — both real and imagined.

I find it incredibly humble of her to share her ideas and vision to those who will listen. Have you seen her Ted talks? If you’re into giggly, easy-going ted talks, I suggest you watch both her appearance at TedxAthens and TedxAmsterdam where a young Bee can be found talking about her pathway into photography, and her qualms with success in the photo world.

Don’t forget to register to Olivia’s (totally free) lecture, Making Art You Want to Make, which runs from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at the Annenberg Space for Photography.

Or, to find out more about the Emerging exhibit keep on readin’ on after the jump.

Emerging is the partnership of the Annenberg and Photo District News (PDN), the award-winning photo publication I’m sure you’re already aware of, which highlights the works of their annual “PDN’s 30 under 30” selection.

The exhibit explores how a new generation of photographers examines a variety of topics, from the personal to the global: youth culture, family, the environment, economic uncertainty, conflict and civil unrest, and the nature of the photographic image.

Emerging will also feature an original short documentary film that profiles ten photographers who have been featured in PDN’s 30: Corey Arnold, Olivia Bee, Peter DiCampo, Pari Dukovic, JUCO, Dina Litovsky, Diana Markosian, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Katie Orlinsky and Marcus Smith.
