Sasha Wolf will be in conversation with the photographer Matthew Pillsbury with a focus on his professional practice, both as a fine art photographer and as a photographer for hire.


Sasha Wolf represents emerging and mid-career, fine art photographers. After running the New York photo gallery, Sasha Wolf Gallery, for 10 years, Sasha transitioned back to a private/pop-up model in 2017. Sasha continues her work to place her artist’s photographs in important private and public collections, edit and support their various book and magazine publications, and curate and support their exhibitions. Additionally, Sasha works as a consultant with a larger group of artists as a book and project editor and on other professional practices. Sasha reviews and judges work for leading art institutions, universities, and fairs numerous times a year and lectures and conducts artist’s workshops around the country on professional practices and project development. Sasha’s book, PhotoWork, was published by Aperture in the Fall of 2019 and her Podcast of the same name is now available on all streaming platforms.

Matthew Pillsbury graduated cum laude from Yale University in 1995 and received his MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2004. In 2007, he was awarded the Fondation HSBC pour la Photographie award in France, and is also a recipient of the 2014 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship. In 2013, Pillsbury published his monograph City Stages with Aperture. His work is represented in more than twenty-five permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; High Museum of Art, Atlanta; Musée du Louvre, Paris; and many others.
