About

Online Learning Class

There is there is a long history of photographers who have used the written word to inform and enhance their image making. American documentary photographer Dorthea Lange said, “All photographs—not only those that are so called ‘documentary’…can be fortified by words.” More and more contemporary artists are exploring the form to find new means of expression, both in analog and digital platforms.

This highly collaborative workshop will encourage and inspire students to combine text and image to tell their stories in a visual way. We will spend focused time using experimental prompts to spontaneously make photographs about words and write words about photographs, using our own work, as well as responding to the work of others. We will also examine and discuss the practices of master artists and will review examples of books, conceptual projects, and digital formats that successfully combine the image and the written word.

Students will leave with a broad understanding of the image/text form and how it can enhance an ongoing creative practice and further their authentic voice.

 

Joanne Dugan is a visual artist, author and editor who lives and works in New York City. Her ongoing fine art practice involves the use of traditional silver-based analog photographic materials to explore photography as a physical medium. Her unique-image experimental abstract works utilize hand-cutting techniques, chemical alterations, vintage materials and repetition to explore and pay homage to the physical limitations and opportunities found in historic analog methods.
