Explore the nexus between the landscape and memory.
Jul 7, 2019 - Jul 13, 2019
Workshop Fee: $1150
Class Size: 12
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 explore that nexus between the landscape and memory. Through written exercises and photographic cues you will explore the connection of the landscape and natural world to your own personal narratives; through symbolism, myth and metaphor.
You will discuss the motivations behind your work and the personal vision you want to create, with a view to developing your portfolio. Each day will be split between writing exercises, working with photographic cues, and critique of your work to hone your vision each day.
For critiques film photographers can bring prints from previous work to share with the group. Digital photographers should bring their own laptop. Whilst all formats are welcome, there will be little time for film processing during the week.
This workshop is designed for photographers looking to develop their portfolio and who are interested in the themes of memory and place.
