Creating A Collaborative Practice and a Community-Engaged Photography Project
As photographers we have a remarkable opportunity to amplify the voices, stories and concerns of communities we work in. Photography has the power to inspire compassion, transformation and action. Photographers can craft moving visual narratives that bring awareness to complex social issues and inform collective action.
In this workshop attendees will have the opportunity to work with a local partner non-profit organization, or an organization of their choice to develop and photograph their story. The organizations will work with participants to identify the concerns of their community and give the photographer access to the individuals impacted. Through photojournalism or environmental portraiture workshop participants will create a body of work with their subject that documents and reflects their organizations' issue.
In this hands-on, energetic and fresh course, each day new bindings are demonstrated and practiced in addition to daily critiques, surveys of contemporary book arts and discussions of design, content, text and image. This is a class for people who love to make things with their hands. No previous experience necessary. The digital lab will be available to make prints of work but students are encouraged to bring as much content in the form of images, text, maps, etc, with them.
