What About Love?
David Hilliard, Elinor Carucci
Our best photographs are often inspired by immensely emotional, physical, or psychological pulls within our lives. In photographing people, places, and even objects that we are intimately acquainted with or drawn to, we are better able to communicate a more profound and specific level of understanding of it through the camera’s lens. These intense feelings are the gateway to emotionally resonant pictures. These longings can inspire and inform many working methodologies—a narrative story, a personal journal, a documentary, a visual poem, self-portraiture, and more. Many of us shy away from addressing “the emotional” within our images, but in this workshop, participants are encouraged to embrace these feelings. Students work on enhancing and informing their vision and style while delving deeper into the emotions and nuances of life, experiences, surroundings, and how they coalesce into photographic imagery.
