Online Learning Class via Zoom

We have all made thousands upon thousands of photos—we store them on our mobile devices, save them on hard-drives, and many are gathering dust in family albums.  Some of you may have outstanding singular images that just don’t seem to fit within a larger cohesive project.  These types of photographs are often shelved, never to be experienced by a viewing public.

This six-session, online workshop will provide you with new strategies for constructing a compelling narrative from a seemingly disparate collection of images.  Photographs are hieroglyphs—a malleable and complex collection of characters and symbols that can be carefully arranged to communicate transformative ideas.  In this workshop we will edit, sequence, manipulate, and carefully arrange images from your archive to construct a powerful visual text.  This exercise will help you begin to identify a powerful psychological dialogue that exists between images when viewed sequentially.  This workshop is ideal for those that are wanting to break from convention—those that are seeking out new modes of photographic expression and challenging the notion of a traditional “body of work.”  If you plan to publish or design a photography book in the near future, this workshop will help you rethink the way photos might be sequenced and arranged.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
