Sunday Salon: Andre D. Wagner

Get up close and personal with NYC’s great street photographers in this new series of talks led by the museum’s curator, Paul Moakley. Each guest photographer will discuss their work, process, and hold an informal conversation about using the street as an open studio. $15/$12 museum members with code SALON. Limited to 20 participants. Purchase tickets here.

Andre D. Wagner (b. 1986) is an artist and photographer born in Omaha, Nebraska. He is a 2010 graduate of Buena Vista University with a BA in Social Work, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. You can find him on Instagram at @photodre.

Wagner's photography explores and chronicles the poetic and lyrical nuances of daily life; using city streets, people, public transportation, and the youth of the twenty-first century as his visual language. His work and sensibilities derive from his life experiences, firmly believing that it's the foundation to the mind's eye, the starting point of it all.

Wagner remains committed to film, developing black and white negatives and making silver gelatin prints in his darkroom.

He will be showing work from his recent book Here For The Ride [Creative Future, 2017]
