Pushing Your Work Forward with Jonathan Blaustein – (One session)
- July 22, 2018
9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Workshop – Part of Exposure Weekend 2018.
Jonathan Blaustein is a regular contributor to the popular blog A Photo Editor, as well as the New York Times Lens blog. He has taught at Pratt Institute, where he received his MFA in Photography, and for 12 years at the University of New Mexico-Taos, including a year as the Chair of the Fine Arts Department. He has spent thousands of hours leading group critiques, and has a unique ability to help students understand ways to push their ideas and craft further.
In this day-long workshop, Jonathan will discuss technical elements, like paper choice and lighting, but also delve into subject matter issues, and how art should connect directly to one’s lived experience and knowledge. Students can expect to be challenged about their habits and practices, and walk away with a new understanding of their work and processes. Come with your printed portfolio and be prepared to talk, listen, and learn in a casual, positive, but rigorous environment. This workshop will be capped at 15 participants.
