Photographs tell stories. In this two day workshop, we will examine how photographic narratives function through creating our own images. We will emphasize editing and sequencing photographs, paying attention to the conceptual implications of our choices. Looking at both historic and contemporary artists will inform our work, and we will touch on traditional documentary work, conceptual tableaus, and everything in between.

While not a technical course, technical demonstrations will be given as needed. Students should have a basic understanding of how their camera works prior to entering the class.

Students muct bring their own DSLR camera with manual functions and are responsible for providing supplies. View the supply list.
