By APA Admin in San Diego

Join APA San Diego for the first of a series: The Anatomy of a Personal Project - and learn how to fall in love with your photography again.

A creative block happens to everyone at one time or another and it’s something that we all experience - you run out of ideas; you run out of gas. You're stuck.

Philipp Sholz Rittermann will share some of his personal work and what inspires him when he gets stuck and how he gets out into the world with a camera and comes back with something wonderful. See what wonderful looks like, hear harrowing tales of overcoming self-loathing and other demons.

About Philipp:

Temporal and spatial themes lie at the heart of Rittermann’s photographic practice. His imagery encompasses nocturnal scenes of industry, pristine landscape, and most recently, installations of large-scale transparencies, which surround the viewer.

Born and raised in Lima, Perú, Rittermann lived in Germany and Spain before immigrating to the United States in the early '80s. His work is held in over one hundred public private, and corporate collections, including MoMA, NY, SFMoMA, CA, MFA, TX, Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, France, and many others.

Rittermann has been teaching photography for over thirty years in the USA and abroad. He exhibits in national, and international venues, and was honored with a mid-career survey at the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego, which published the monograph Navigating by Light. In 2011, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego exhibited large-scale works from Emperor’s River, a photographic project he conducted in China. Emperor’s River has traveled to several museums across the country.
