One of the youngest known survivors of Auschwitz, Horowitz immigrated to the United States in 1959, enrolled at New York’s Pratt Insittiute and pursued a lifelong career in photography. His work has been exhibited, published and collected around the globe and Ryszard has been awarded every major accolade that can be bestowed on a photographer including Doctor Honoris Causa Awarded by Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.
In his workshop July 17 – 23, Ryszard shares his Photocomposing expertise, teaching students how to assemble seemingly unrelated images, taken at different times and in distant parts of the world, to create seamless compositions.
Kirkland started his career at Look and Life magazines in the 60’s and 70’s “golden age” of photojournalism. He has worked on the set of over 100 motion pictures: Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Out of Africa, Titanic, Moulin Rouge and Australia. His iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nicholson, Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas, among others are known all over the world.
His July 24 – 30 workshop is for inspiring and professional photographers looking to advance their photographic skills to a level only an iconic photographer like Kirkland can elicit. Drawing together his career of expertise and experiences in this weeklong workshop, Douglas gives students exposure into the mind of one of the photo industry's most influential artists.
