The class will meet for 5 Thursdays, Oct 19-Nov 16 from 6-8pm ET.
Join Michael Lundgren in a virtual workshop on the practice of landscape photography. There are photographs that document a place and there are photographs whose success is built solely upon the beauty of the natural world or the terror of its destruction—but what about those images that embody different layers of time and evoke a complexity of meaning? Lundgren will share deeply from his own work and experience, offering insight to propel your work beyond literal description into the richly storied realm of the animate landscape.
Through group discussion, students will hone their working process and further realize the relationship of their photographs to the larger context of the field. This course is intended for experienced photographic artists who are wishing to expand and refine their own vision. This is not a technique driven class though we will discuss how technical and aesthetic choices are playing a role. Participants should be prepared to share an in progress body of work and any questions they have concerning its development.
