Artist Talk: APERTURE – A World of Stories with Esteban Toro
Travel photographer, Sony ambassador, represented worldwide by YellowKorner Gallery, Esteban Toro, shares his project: Aperture: A World of Stories. A documentary series created by Sony, where Toro meets two of the most remarkable figures of the photography world: Scott Gray, the CEO of the World Photography Organization, and Brent Lewis, a photo editor of The New York Times.
The series takes place in five different countries around the world: Colombia, Myanmar, Nepal, India and The United States. While Esteban discusses with Brent and Scott the photographs and stories he documented, these photography experts exchange views on the importance of ethics, editing, sequencing, printing and creating a portfolio for any photographer who wants to discover the world through the camera lens.
During this class, Esteban will share behind the scenes, the process of creating this ambitious documentary and the experience he had using printed photographs to present his work to art collectors and editors he usually works with. Come and discover the world through the lens of a traveler!
