Cig Harvey & Jonathan Singer
DATES: June 8 – 12, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: III
CONCEPT: Photography is a uniquely powerful vehicle for sharing a singular vision. This workshop targets those interested in cultivating a cohesive body of work with a distinct visual voice. Investigate how the invisible is brought to life with photography by engaging in discussions that address the mysterious and intimate language of symbols, surrogates, iconography and metaphors as means to pursue a heightened visual language. Join us as we delve deeper into the art of photography and explore the personal vs. the universal, the constructed vs. the found, and how to avoid the pitfalls of stereotype and cliché.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students practice digital photography, digital printmaking and create a digital workflow with Adobe Photoshop.
ACTIVITIES: Daily discussions, written exercises and reviews of work in progress. Individual assignments help participants hone their abilities, recognize and capture emotional content and create memorable images.
FACULTY: Cig Harvey’s photographs have been widely exhibited and can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the International Museum of Photography and the George Eastman House. Her monograph, “You Look At Me Like An Emergency,” was published in 2012. Cig teaches workshops and lectures at institutions around the world. www.cigharvey.com
