Photographic Poetry

Steve Molina Contreras

Tuition $1,095
Code P0511-23

In this weeklong workshop, students photograph, edit, print, and sequence a small body of work inspired by written poetry. Each morning, the students engage in group dialogues and critiques as they develop their ability to embrace their chosen narrative. Participants are also introduced to a selection of artists and writers who have approached photography through a literary lens. Using a wide range of photographic techniques including portraiture, landscape, appropriation, and alternative processes, the group will be guided in taking a project from concept to final form. Students learn how to be comfortable experimenting with their approach to photography or working in ways they haven't before.
