Looking In, Looking Out
In this weeklong workshop, students develop a cohesive photographic project originating from their own interests and experiences. Students are challenged to approach difficult themes: their interior emotional content or imbalances they perceive in the world around them. While engaging with the world beyond their own, students create a series of images that illustrate an external concern. Subjects may include, but are not limited to significant events, upheaval, or desire. The course addresses the mechanics of editing, sequencing, and essay writing in support of bodies of work that convey an original point of view.
