Join APA | DC as we spend 30 Minutes with portraiture photographer Noah Willman. Noah plans to share a personal project about blind hockey - documenting clubs throughout the East Coast, a three-day Team USA vs. Team Canada tournament in Toronto, and the players' lives outside the sport. All of the players are legally blind, and besides minor differences (like using a metal puck filled with ball bearings that can be tracked by sound or making the net one foot smaller to accommodate the fully blind goalies), they play hockey that can be hard to distinguish from the sighted version of the sport.
This virtual event is free to all APA Members, Future APA Members and Students.
Noah Willman is a photographer based in Washington, DC specializing in portraiture. His work often involves photographing athletes, politicians, and business leaders for editorial and commercial clients including Fortune Magazine, Runner’s World, and Discovery. After moving to DC from his hometown of Madison, WI in 2015 he started his first long-term personal project on the Washington Cricket League, which was later featured by Washingtonian. Throughout the years, Noah has used personal projects as a platform to create the work he is excited about, without the influence of a client. These projects have often directly led to editorial features and commissions.
