Instructor

This is a workshop about the emotional and sub-conscious content of photos and how to make photos that come from that place, helping you to truly define your own voice as a photographer. It is not a workshop about making “good” photos. It’s about setting aside technical know-how (and the obstacles that often come with that) and accessing intuitive, reflective ways of working that will lead you to make photos that only you can make.

Rather than focusing on the “how” of making and composing photographs, this workshop focuses on weekly problem-solving assignments that are designed to engage students with the emotions and personal connections involved in creating photographs that truly reveal a personal visual voice. Each week, we will review the work that students have made and choose one photo made from the assignment, a visual “word,” resulting in a complete visual sentence at the end of the workshop.

“Part of this workshop is inspired by those I learned from, but most of it is informed by the fact that I became a photographer at a time in my life when I lost my faith in words. As someone who had grown up believing in the power of words to convey truth and inspire action, as someone who had been a reporter for nearly 20 years, I was shocked to encounter a situation in my life where words utterly failed me. Almost by accident, I picked up a camera first as a way to try to communicate with the person who could not be reached through words, but ultimately as a way to communicate with myself, with my own thoughts and feelings during what was a painful, yet ultimately transformative time. Although my work as a photographer has taken me back into journalism, and long-term documentary projects, I have never lost my connection to this personal approach to shooting, and to understanding that every truly revelatory image is as much about the person taking the picture as it is about the subject.” – Sara Terry
