Note: This workshop will be held in a live, online format utilizing the Zoom platform.
Class meets for 5 Wednesdays, 1-3pm ET.
Guided by photographer Holly Lynton, in this workshop, you will learn to delve deeper into the process of photography. By integrating research and preparation into your image making, students will find new ways to create photographs that go beyond the image’s surface and reveal a deeper understanding of the enigmatic, lyrical world beyond. In studying your own work and process – and integrating Holly’s image making techniques – you will build a toolkit of skills that will carry your work forward to construct more nuanced photographic narratives.
The learning process will be centered around creating a storytelling project through a combination of in-class development and fieldwork. As a class, you will explore what it means to be a visual storyteller today, and through your research, consider how one may ethically approach their image making. You will receive feedback from your instructor and peers on your current work, as well as photographs made during the workshop.
Most importantly, you will leave the workshop with a new perspective on the image-making process and a new set of techniques to craft compelling photographic narratives.
