Online Learning Class via Zoom

Whether they are words in a photograph, adjacent poetry or prose, or the obligatory artist statement, understanding the relationship between text and image is essential for photographic expression. Done poorly, text with image can flatten a photograph, often subverting and robbing photographs of their power. But well done and considered, text can increase the depth and richness of a photograph or a series of photographs exponentially.

In this workshop participants will work on their own text and images. We will begin by exploring the relationship between writing and photography through reading, looking and writing. After introductions and the initial lecture and discussion, the class will consist of three critique/workshop sessions spread out over a 10 day period where participants will each work on a writing project. It can be a photo/text project, poetry or prose, or an artist statement/essay that they hope to develop in relation to a set of images.

Participants should come to the workshop with a writing project they are ready to work on.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
