Surreal Self: The Constructed Image
Embark on a journey of self-expression through surrealism and explore the incorporation of symbolism and metaphors to make latent and complex narratives visible within self-portraiture. This workshop is designed for those wanting to explore the depths of photography as a medium for personal expression and narrative creation. Through a series of interactive sessions, students develop expansive entry points for approaching portraiture and constructing conceptual visual narratives. Group discussions and one-on-one sessions serve to refine one's artistic approach and storytelling techniques. By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained valuable insights into self-portraiture, surrealism in photography, and visual storytelling.
