The Art of Visual Storytelling
In-depth storytelling is more important now than ever. This workshop offers intermediate and advanced photographers a structured and supportive learning environment for acquiring the knowledge, techniques, and artistic background needed for creating impactful visual narrative projects. Socially and culturally conscious storytellers document the human experience, aiming to inform or challenge our perceptions by creatively sharing their perspectives. Through lectures, assignments, critique sessions, and class discussions, students examine ethical, social, and visual aspects of the genre, learn methodologies practiced by leaders and artists in the field, and develop their own personal long-term documentary projects.
