Online Learning Class via Zoom

Images are discrete moments frozen in time. How do we take these disparate moments and create larger narratives using multiple photographs?

In this class we will investigate photography’s strengths and limitations for creating narratives and harness that knowledge to create evocative, enigmatic and powerful statements. We will learn how photographic narratives have evolved over time and how the internet era has increased our visual literacy, allowing us to see connections between images that we might have before overlooked. Over our time together we will examine linear narratives, fractured narratives, diaristic narratives and anti-narratives. We will also explore sequencing strategies such as color, image content, gesture, graphic elements and the relationship between image and text.

This class is open to photographers who have long-term projects they would like to take to the next level through dynamic sequencing as well as photographers who simply want to begin to explore the potent ways images can be activated through creative arrangement. Students will construct a sequence of images by referencing lectures and examples discussed in class.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.


Amani Willett (https://www.amaniwillett.com/) is a Brooklyn and Boston-based photographer whose practice is driven by conceptual ideas surrounding family, history, memory, and the social environment. Working primarily with the book form, his three monographs have been published to widespread critical acclaim. Disquiet (Damiani, 2013) and The Disappearance of Joseph Plummer (Overlapse, 2017) and A Parallel Road (Overlapse 2020) were selected by Photo-Eye as “best books” of the year and have been highlighted in over 70 publications. Amani completed an MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts, NY in 2012 and a BA from Wesleyan University in 1997.
