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
