Postscript:  PPA would like to thank Art Center College of Design, Samy’s Camera, Aaroe Community Foundation, and all who attended the recent lecture and book signing at Art Center.  It could not have happened without you.  Most of all, our gratitude to Dan Winters for sharing his extraordinary work with us.  The event was keenly insightful, hilarious and deeply moving.

After studying photography at college in Southern California, Dan finished his formal education at the film school of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany. He began his career in photography as a photojournalist in his home town in Ventura County, California. After winning several regional awards for his work, he moved to New York City, where magazine assignments came rapidly. Known for the broad range of subject matter he is able to interpret, he is widely recognized for his unusual celebrity portraiture, his scientific photography, photo illustrations, drawings and photojournalistic stories. Dan has won over one hundred national and international awards from American Photography, Communication Arts, The Society of Publication Designers, PDN, The Art Directors Club of New York, Life Magazine.

His work is in the permanent collections at the National Portrait Gallery, Museum of Fine Art, Houston, The Harry Ransom Center and the Wittliff Collection at Texas State University, San Marcos.

pasadenaPhotographyArts – Forum #13

Thursday / December 8, 2016 / 7pm

Friðgeir Helgason
“Mood” and “Sand Snjór”

Friðgeir Helgason was born on the small island of Vestmannaeyjar off of the south coast of Iceland. At 6 years old, he and his family were evacuated to escape a volcanic eruption that in the weeks that followed, lead to the loss of their home. He spent most of his formative years in Reykjavík with summer breaks spent at sea working on fishing trawlers and merchant marine ships. Friðgeir dropped out of school when the Prime Minister of Iceland, Steingrimur Hermansson, gave him a ticket to Europe for winning the equivalent of Rock n’ Roll Jeopardy. He set off to see the world. Friðgeir first visited the United States as a tourist, arriving on Christmas Day in 1986. Within a few years, he was living in Louisiana, working as a promising young chef in New Orleans. In 2004, Friðgeir’s personal life collapsed – homeless and addicted – he was living in a cardboard box on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles. He checked himself into the Midnight Mission, where he resided for a year and a half, formally graduating from the program in 2006. During his stay at the mission, he returned to school, studying Cinematography at Los Angeles City College. During a requisite Beginning Photography Class, Friðgeir discovered his creative voice in photography. Friðgeir Helgason shoots film on a 6×7 Medium Format Camera and a 4×5 Large Format Camera. He prints in both color and black and white.
