THE CENTER: Visual Storytelling & Documentary Photography

Ed Kashi, James Estrin

Tuition $1,700
Code P1327-21

The digital age has given documentary photographers and photojournalists new ways to tell stories with greater authorship and control. This workshop focuses on how to create a personal documentary project and get it seen. The ultimate goal is to find a subject that speaks to a personal passion, document it in a unique visual style, then disseminate the work. New technologies to be more effective storytellers are used, including social media, transmedia, virtual reality and digital video. This class is in the second year of a three year program; tuition is per week, per year. Please contact Andrea Jenkins Wallace for more information. awallace@andersonranch.org Portfolio Review Required: Thank you for your interest in our Level IV photography workshops at Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
