For 10 years F295 has specialized in bringing together the cream of the photographic crop. We’ve been proud to host hundreds of exciting makers, brilliant speakers, thinkers, and those expansively investigating the limitless possibilities of the medium. We’ve brought more photographers to lecture in the region in that period of time than any other photography organization. We’ve educated hundreds of people through our world-class workshop program. And we’ve hosted a number of great museum quality exhibitions.
To help those who haven’t been here understand more about F295 we’ve asked a number of past speakers, as well as those who have continually returned to F295, what keeps bringing them back to Pittsburgh and F295. We’ll feature more of these, Why F295? pieces, over the coming weeks, but today I’m proud to run a few words from Brian Taylor.
I have thoroughly enjoyed attending F295 lectures from San Francisco to Pittsburgh. Through the years, I’ve participated as a speaker, workshop teacher, and most importantly, as a happy member of the audience! Tom Persinger has carefully crafted a premier gathering of photographers, creating a conference rich with opportunities to learn and make new lifelong friends among the kindred spirits in attendance. The many illustrated lectures present a wealth of imagery and creativity, and the social gatherings before and after the presentations are a wonderful time to discover common interests and share aesthetic and technical information. As the director of a historic photography center in California, I try to bring West Coast energy and ideas to F295, but I always come away from the conference inspired, energized, and certain that I learned more than any one else! Bravo, Tom, F295 gets better every year!
