We are thrilled to announce that photographer and art director Carlota Guerrero will be joining the line up for Here 2017. Barcelona-based Carlota shot to fame this summer after producing the artwork for Solange’s acclaimed album A Seat at the Table. “The album has a very strong message about black community, and I had to learn a lot and help her translate such strong messages in a beautiful and clear visual language,” says Carlota.
Her dreamy, ethereal images are empowering and emotive and provide an acute sense of beauty whether she is photographing people or inanimate objects. Carlota signed to WeFolk earlier this year and has shot for POP, Nylon and Coeval magazine. Her work displays a quietly assured approach to image making that is at once calm and powerful.
Alongside Carlota, this year’s speakers include fashion designer Christopher Raeburn, graphic designer and illustrator George Hardie, photographer Juno Calypso, artist Ryan Gander, graphic design agency Triboro, graphic artist James Jarvis, graphic designer Astrid Stavro, art director and artist (and one of It’s Nice That’s Ones to Watch 2017) Marguerite Humeau. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
Alongside the talks, we are lining up activities throughout the day that will offer you the chance to flex your creative muscles and engage with our speakers and sponsors. We will also provide a delicious lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
