Exploring themes of Memory and Place

There are no available registration dates at this time.

This class will be held online using the Zoom Platform. 

The places we live, or those we have visited, often hold powerful meanings and associations for us. How does an object or particular landscape convey its history and suggest that echo of past experience?

Join photographer/writer Sal Taylor Kydd as you uncover the nexus between the landscape and memory. Through written exercises, class discussion and photographic cues you will explore the connection between the landscape and natural world and your own personal narratives; through symbolism, myth and metaphor.

This workshop is designed for experienced photographers looking to develop their portfolio and who are interested in the themes of memory and place. 

Schedule (Times EST):

The class will meet from 9am – noon via Zoom for class discussion and critique. Afternoons will be spent shooting before gathering again at 4 where Sal will hold open hours for questions and to review the day.

Time will be created during the week for one-one discussion with Sal to discuss the motivations behind your work and the personal vision you wish to create, with a view to developing your portfolio.
