Artist’s Talk: Hobbes Ginsberg

Friday February 28, 7 pm

Join New York-based photographer and filmmaker Hobbes Ginsberg for a conversation with writer Cason Sharpe exploring contemporary photography, portraiture, and the subversive potential of the selfie. 

Hobbes Ginsberg is a lesbian photographer and filmmaker based in New York city making vulnerable, hyper-saturated work about the evolution of self. Once called a "shabby, self-taught formalist", Hobbes’s photos are candid, mythical, and ask important questions: “who am i? why am i here? do u love me bb?”  

Cason Sharpe is a writer currently based in Toronto. His fiction, essays, and criticism have appeared in Canadian Art, C Magazine, Xtra, PRISM International, The Hart House Review, and GUTS Canadian Feminist Magazine, among others. His first collection of short stories, Our Lady of Perpetual Realness, was released by Metatron in 2017.
