Andrew Hetherington Lecture Tonite

Tonight, 7pm, popular editorial photographer and sticky photoblogger Andrew Hetherington of What's The Jackanory fame lectures at the Apple Store, One Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA. Word has it that A.H. has put time into this first premiered in NYC, so arrive early to get a seat.

Of course there is a pint fueled blow out after the event at Johnny Foleys, 243 O'Farrell Street.

I will be there, but need to run home to take the babysitter back not too many pints. I'll try to keep everyone happy: solving the issues of contemporary photography, witnessing greatness incarnate, and dealing with childcare.

It was an exciting evening. AH kind of told his life story- how he got interested in music, magazine culture and photography...all the things that shaped him and led him to move to NY to be a photographer. The most interesting part for me was to see this evolution: his fashion work, which he was able to take pretty far and then pull the plug on and then how he came to eventually find the voice that he currently has and has become known for. I could have listened to a lecture about that chapter alone, really, because I think it is an important part in being a photographer...the shifting of gears and moving to the next level. Its so important.
Anyhow...he then got into the power and importance of blog culture and how he cultivated that as a form of community. That was good stuff as well...but less about photography and more about this other thing. There was a message in there some where about how suddenly...with blogs and the net...the barrier of accessibility is gone. Everyone seems to be able to reach everyone...and the power and equality that has given us. was deep.
I'd have enjoyed a lecture that was simply about his work, but that is for another forum. This was more on a grand scale...lots of topics covered.
I gotta do a talk there in I'm kind of taking notes and trying to figure it out myself....its a noisy venue and there is no easy way around that.
He gave out free gifts which really seemed to turn people I may bring a pinata or something.
