Sebastian Copeland
Into the Cold: A Journey of the Soul
Thursday, May 8th, 2014 • 6:30-8:00pm

Sebastian Copeland is an award winning explorer, photographer and author. A recipient of the 2007 IPA’s Photographer of the Year award for his first book, Antarctica: The Global Warning, Copeland’s photos have appeared in hundreds of publications worldwide, including National Geographic, Men’s Journal and the New York Times. His fine art prints have been seen in museums and galleries globally. 

Copeland returns to the Annenberg Space for Photography to present his award winning film Into The Cold: A Journey of the Soul. The film chronicles his and partner Keith Heger’s harrowing North Pole expedition in sub-zero temperatures to commemorate the centennial of Admiral Peary's first reach in 1909. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and went on to win awards internationally.

Following the screening, Copeland will answer questions about the more exacting aspects of filming and photographing in freezing environments, and discuss what compels him to push his limits to bring back narratives from the Earth’s most antagonistic regions.

 

Mary Virginia Swanson
To Be Published or To Self-Publish? Options for Artists Today
Thursday, May 15th, 2014 • 6:30-8:00pm

Mary Virginia Swanson is an author, educator and advisor to artists and arts organizations whose career includes exhibiting, collecting and licensing photography. In 2013, Swanson received the Focus Award for Lifetime Achievement in Photography from the Griffin Museum in Boston. Swanson’s publications, articles, and blog serve as resources for photographers and can be found at her website.

The publishing industry is undergoing extraordinary changes. The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new possibilities, and it has never been easier or more affordable to produce a book of one’s own photographs. Swanson will discuss both traditional publishing and self-publishing, and help participants determine the pros and cons for their unique needs. Swanson will also share resources from Publish Your Photography Book, which she coauthored with Darius Himes, and which has recently been updated and expanded.
