Collecting Emerging Photography Panel

I've been invited to participate in a moderated panel discussion on collecting emerging photography. The details of where and when are below. I think it could be a lively event. One of the main things to wrestle with is the definition of the word "emerging" in the context of collecting. Is it an economic term? Is it defined by youth? Gallery representation? I think the term is understood in many different ways by many different people. I hope some of that will come to the fore in our discussions. Please come if you're free, and feel free to post comments after the event.

Collecting Contemporary Photography (Emphasis on Emerging)

The Camera Club of New York will present a panel discussion about collecting contemporary photography (emphasis on emerging) on Tuesday, March 3, 8-10pm, at the School of Visual Arts Amphitheater, 209 E. 23rd St., 3rd Floor.

Participants include photo dealers Daniel Cooney and Michael Mazzeo; photo collectors Joe Baio and Evan Mirapaul; and Cara Phllips, co-founder of the online site Women in Photography and Amani Olu, private dealer, curator, and founder of Humble Arts Foundation, a non-profit that works to advance the careers of emerging fine art photographers. Photographers Allen Frame and Saul Robbins will moderate the panel and take questions from the audience.

Please rsvp to info@cameraclubny.org or call Emile Dubuisson at the Camera Club, 212-260-9927. Please note that the event has been changed from the Camera Club of New York to SVA’s Amphitheater to accommodate the wide interest.
