The Artist's Voice: image and collage
Joshua Rashaad McFadden, Esther Macy Nooner
Memory and archive are records of the past, closely correlated, but diverse in interpretation, especially when it comes to personal history. This workshop encourages students to examine their own personal histories with the goal of producing self-portraiture with methods of digital photography and alternative photographic processes such as transfer techniques, collage and digital print manipulation. In addition to the study of portraiture techniques and group discussions, students work one-on-one with the instructor to deepen their own voice and message. This course facilitates the sharpening of personal visions, technical skills and conceptual frameworks to strengthen the artistic practice.
