About the Book
200 1st Avenue
& in conversation
with Rafael Sánchez:
Conrad Ventur is an artist working in photography, video, and installation. Since 2000, he has consistently taken immensely personal and instinctive photographs of his subjects – often those under threat of being forgotten or rewritten over time.
After the death of Rafael Sánchez’ partner and collaborator Kathleen White in the fall of 2014, Conrad was invited by Rafael to stay in the apartment where the two artists lived and Kathleen transitioned.
The intimacy of loss is illuminated through images of the artifacts that remain and offer an extended presence.
