Photography, like poetry, is a language that speaks to our hearts as well as our minds. It can be precise and detailed, but not the language of mere fact. It holds the unsayable and the complexity of human experience. This workshop will use short poems and other prompts as a springboard toward creating a suite of images of personal and universal significance.
Discussions about the creative process will support students’ connection to discovering their unique voice and vision. Critiques will allow space for constructive feedback, the development of aesthetic principles and technical skills. Extensive follow-up notes will introduce students to a range of historical and contemporary practitioners. Familiarity with poetry is not necessary. Play, joy, and experimentation will be encouraged.
Students will possess greater knowledge of:
- Aesthetic principles
- Technical skills
- Contemporary and historical photographers
- Their own voice

Instructor: Janelle Lynch
Janelle Lynch is an American artist whose work reveals an inquiry into themes of connection, presence, and transcendence. While she photographed exclusively in the landscape for the first two decades of her career, Lynch's practice has expanded to include environmental portraiture, still life, and cyanotypes. Since 2015, all of her work has been informed by her ongoing training in perceptual drawing and painting.
Lynch’s photographs are in many private and public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the International Center of Photography, New York; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Her photographs and cyanotypes have been shown worldwide, including at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; LUMA Westbau, Zurich; the Shanghai Center of Photography; and Flowers Gallery, London, which represents her work.
