The Photography of Place with Andrew Moore

June 17 – 21, 2024

Delve into the art of capturing landscapes that tell a story with our upcoming workshop, Photography of Place: Connecting the Inner and Outer, June 17-21, led by the renowned photographer Andrew Moore. This immersive experience is perfect for photographers eager to infuse their landscapes with meaning and narrative.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn from Andrew Moore, an artist celebrated for his evocative depictions of places seemingly lost in time. His images, where architecture and nature serve as silent witnesses to history, invite viewers to rethink our place in the natural world. As an educator, Moore has a gift for helping students elevate their landscape projects, guiding them to find and hone their voice. This workshop offers an opportunity to learn directly from a true master and apply those insights to your own work.

What About Love? with Elinor Carucci and David Hilliard

June 24 – 28, 2024

The most powerful photography captures more than mere moments; it encapsulates emotions and stories, the intangible narratives that resonate within each frame. This workshop is designed for photographers who aspire to infuse their work with authentic emotional resonance and narrative power. “What About Love?”  from June 24 – 28, is an ode to our quest to intertwine felt experience with the visual, crafting images that speak volumes beyond their silent existence.

This is a chance to learn from the dynamic duo of Elinor Carucci and David Hilliard. Known for their evocative and emotionally rich imagery, they will guide you through the process of using personal experiences and surroundings to create images that communicate a powerful language without words.

Fine art photographer Elinor Carucci is known for images that invoke the heart and tenderness of the lived experience. She recently published her fifth photo book, The Collars of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, A Portrait of Justice, with the body of work currently exhibited at the Jewish Museum in New York City.

David Hilliard, an award-winning artist with an MFA from Yale, is celebrated for his large-scale panoramic photographs which contemplate the nuanced dynamics of relationships, the concept of identity, and the human connection to the surrounding environment. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally and has held teaching positions at Harvard and Massachusetts College of Art.

Intro to Wet Plate Techniques with Rashod Taylor

August 5 – 9, 2024

This summer, step back in time with Intro to Wet Plate Photography led by acclaimed photographer, Rashod Taylor. We are excited to have Rashod return to Anderson Ranch for his fourth consecutive year from August 5-9.

This meticulous, deeply hands-on process offers the reward of creating timeless, one-of-a-kind images that stand out in today’s fast-paced world.

Participants will learn to create tintypes and ambrotypes and gain hands-on experience in a darkroom for chemical sensitizing and processing. This open-level workshop is ideally suited for anyone with an interest in early hand-crafted photography.
