W.M. “Bill” Hunt and Friends

As we’ve been warning, tomorrow night at 7:00 pm, collector, curator, consultant, writer, teacher, and fundraiser W.M. “Bill” Hunt, known for his wit and larger-than-life personality, comes to Aperture to present his “wry, uproarious” multimedia performance piece, “The Unseen Eye: A Life in Photographs and Other Digressions…” He uses slides, sound and video to reflect on his many years as a collector seeking out photographs in which the subjects’ eyes are somehow obscured.

In the clip above, Hunt (at Aperture Gallery, December 19, 2011) invites photographers from his collection and book The Unseen Eye: Photographs From the Unconscious (Aperture 2011) to share hilarious and charming anecdotes about their “spectacular friendships.” Featuring: Elinor Carucci, Michael Flomen, Phyllis Galembo, Luis Mallo, Gary Schneider, Gerald Slota, Frank Yamrus, and Fred Weber.
