In-Person Learning Class

Given the speed with which images made with a camera come into being in comparison to most art forms, the plethora of projects photography churns out isn’t surprising. But do such projects necessarily reach the broader audiences their creators may be seeking for the work? If we’re always starting with something new, who can keep up with us? Something more than a great project is necessary.

Call it identity. It would seem that a series of photographs or projects that are hinged to a singular voice and philosophy of vision have a better chance of communicating, inspiring, and motivating us because memorability steps in; we already recognize the imagery and hunger for what’s next. The message remains, the means finds new pathways to getting there.

Discovering that kind of unity is built on a simple dictum: make it different, keep it the same. The methodology is called the Power of Three. In this workshop we will build a framework for a cohesive vision capable of handling  variance and freshness, a vision that can continue for months, years, even decades ahead.

 

Arno Rafael Minkkinen  (https://www.arnorafaelminkkinen.com/) is a Finnish American photographer and Emeritus Professor of Art at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Docent at the Aalto University School of Art, Design, and Architecture in Helsinki. Already in 1969—years before the self-portrait genre evolved from Cindy Sherman and Francesca Woodman as it did in the mid-70s—Minkkinen began what would become a personal quest, dedicating over five decades to a single concept, that of the unmanipulated nude self-portrait in communion and counterpoint with nature outdoors and urban settings. Publications and solo and group exhibitions worldwide number in the hundreds. Minkkinen’s writings, teaching stints, academic and curatorial endeavors are extensive and international in scope as well. Workshops, in particular, have been held China, Brazil, Guatemala, Russia, Finland, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, and Italy not to mention in America in Florida, California, Maine, New Mexico, Colorado, and North Carolina.
