Join Rick for a lighthearted foray into the world of film photography (read: SLOW Camerawork). Like the Slow Food Movement, those same cravings exist for tactile, physical, real pieces of film. Rick reveals this rewarding process with his 4×5 field camera, and Pentax 6×7, and may convince you to drop your phones post-lecture. He will share his architectural, landscape, and conceptual photography.
Rick Wright is an architectural and fine art photographer with his studio in Philadelphia, PA. He practices and teaches photography as a malleable medium. Though initially trained as a painter at Princeton and Columbia Universities (BA and MFA), he later studied at ICP in NY with John Loengard, Susan Meiselas, Danny Lyon, and Nan Goldin. His photographic life is a blend of personal work (silver-based photography), commercial work (architecture), and dedicated instruction (visualization & darkroom art). In 2019, Rick’s fine art work received critical acclaim and attention. He was published in Lenswork magazine, Float magazine, and BETA Magazine. Rick is collected in several permanent collections locally and nationally. Wright has kept a studio in Philadelphia for the past 13 years and teaches photography at various venues including: The Halide Project, Peters Valley School of Craft, and Fleisher Art Memorial.
