Class meets weekly on Mondays 1-4pm ET, for ten total sessions
The mind map is a way to explore information related to a central theme- a word or image in the center of a blank page from which associations radiate. In this seminar, we will use the mind map exercise as a visual thinking tool to examine the genesis of students’ connections to their photography and to consider the elements that inform it, including primary interests, dreams, memories, creative influences, and key relationships.
Additional related exercises will build upon and expand findings. Discoveries serve as a springboard for a series of images created throughout the term.

Janelle Lynch is an American large-format photographer who has investigated themes of absence, presence, transcendence, and the life cycle in her work. Her most recent series, Another Way of Looking at Love, for which she was shortlisted for the Prix Pictet 2019, explores the interconnectedness of all life forms and supports a renewal of human relationships to each other, and to the natural and spiritual worlds. Lynch’s photographs are in many public and private collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the International Center of Photography, New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She has three monographs published by Radius Books: Los Jardines de México (2010); AIGA award-winning Barcelona (2013), which also features her writings; and Another Way of Looking at Love (2018), which includes an essay by Darius Himes, International Head of Photographs, Christie’s. Lynch’s work has been shown internationally. She has had one-person museum exhibitions at the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía (Mexico City), the Southeast Museum of Photography (Daytona Beach, FL), the Burchfield Penney Art Center (Buffalo, NY), and the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY).
