Strategies of Self-Portraiture

How do we make an image of ourselves that moves beyond simple description? What elevates a self-portrait into the realm of narrative or universal? How can we use our own bodies to illustrate a concept or an idea? This class will help students answer these questions and more by studying the history and techniques of self-portraiture, shooting at home, and reviewing photos together.

We all have a story to tell, ideas and identities that are uniquely our own. Whether we are telling the story of one or many, we are our most accessible and agreeable subjects. The only requirement is a willingness to be vulnerable. This class is for those who are new to self-portraiture, as well as those who might need a push with current self portrait projects.

This class is strictly limited to 10 students.

Jennifer McClure ( is a fine art photographer based in New York City. She uses the camera to ask and answer questions. Her work is about solitude and a poignant, ambivalent yearning for connection. The Leica Gallery in Boston will present a solo show of her work in April 2021. She was a 2019 and 2017 Critical Mass Top 50 finalist and twice received the Arthur Griffin Legacy Award from the Griffin Museum of Photography’s annual juried exhibitions. Jennifer was awarded CENTER’s Editor’s Choice by Susan White of Vanity Fair in 2013 and has been exhibited in numerous shows across the country. She has taught workshops for Leica, PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo, the Maine Media Workshops, The Griffin Museum, and Fotofusion. Her work has been featured in publications such as Vogue, GUP, The New Republic, Lenscratch, Feature Shoot, L’Oeil de la Photographie, The Photo Review, Dwell, and PDN. She also founded the Women’s Photo Alliance in 2015.
