Question your “voice” as a visual storyteller.
Date: Aug 12 -18, 2018
Levels: Advanced, Master
Workshop Fee: $1150
Class Size: 14
There is a lot of discussion of “finding your voice” in photography — but what does that mean? And when should the style of your visual storytelling be dictated more by your subject matter and the people in your photographs?
This workshop will focus on alternative processes (specifically multiple exposure) as an editorial tool — when is it a meaningful tactic for storytelling, what can it augment traditional documentary photography, and how can it be employed in a thoughtful and responsible way?
We’ll explore all of the individual components that go into successful composites: from portraiture techniques, to the interview, to successful blending and editing strategies (this workshop will be geared towards smartphone-based photography, but will address computer-based strategies as well).
Part of the course will involve looking at existing bodies of work that employ alternative processes, as well as other forms of conceptual and experimental photographic storytelling from Endia Beal to Zun Lee, and brainstorming ways that we can translate these methodologies to our own stories and practices.
