Independent Projects in Photography
This is a workshop for visual artists working with photography who are seeking support and feedback on their long-term projects. Listening to how others read your work can stimulate ideas. It can also help your project grow or find its form. Our time will be spent discussing, editing, and brainstorming possible directions for your work, while nurturing self-critique. What are your motives and biases? What larger questions or themes are you probing? What obstacles are you facing and how can you creatively move through them? We also discuss photo books, grants, residencies, exhibitions, and the ways that text, moving images, textiles and collage can work in conversation with photographs.
