Online Learning Class

This class is about experimenting with a hands-on approach and pushing the boundaries of what a “typical” photograph is supposed to be. We explore different techniques in creating original imagery (this includes experimenting with different cameras and other visual sources and using multiple images of various sizes), work spontaneously with chance, and turn mistakes into advantages. Designed to challenge students’ creative approach, this class opens new possibilities and allows for innovations in one’s own photographic practice. Students are encouraged to use resources that they have on-hand at home to challenge what they might not have thought of using before in their photography.

This course is strictly limited to 10 students.

Gerald Slota ( ) is a fine artist and photographer who has been widely exhibited across the US and abroad. He has had solo shows at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, and Langhans Galerie in Prague, Czech Republic, as well as been shown at Recontres D’ Arles in Arles, France. Slota has had multiple solo exhibits at Ricco/Maresca Gallery in NYC and is represented by the Robert Berman Gallery in Los Angeles. His images have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times Magazine, Vice, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Discover, and Scientific America, as well as in BOMB, Artforum, ARTNEWS, Art in America, and Aperture. He currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, and has lectured at many institutions such as the International Center for Photography (ICP). Gerald Slota has garnered many awards including a Polaroid 20”x24” Grant, a MacDowell Artist Residency, and a Mid-Atlantic Fellowship Grant in 2001, 2009 and 2021.
