Photography and Representation
Tina Campt, Tyler Mitchell
Engage in critical group dialogue and critiques to hone the fundamental aspects of your work and deepen your understanding of contemporary art practice. In this Master Class workshop for advanced photographers, students produce work at their own pace, pausing in the mornings for discussion with the instructors and peers. Topics are wide-ranging in both depth and breadth, including technique, concept, approach, and context. Students are expected to work independently and to set their own studio goals for the week. The course strongly encourages a broad interpretation of photography for this workshop and welcomes artists working in all forms of lens based media. To attend a Master Class workshop, a portfolio review is due by Friday, February 11th, 2022. Instructions on how to submit your portfolio are as follows: Submit digital images of your work in one single PDF (as opposed to individual JPG attachments) via email directly to Anderson Ranch Studio Coordinator, Esther Nooner at email@example.com. The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 10 images of 10 works with image identification that lists the title, media, dimensions and year of each image. While not required, it is helpful to see an artist statement addressing the images you send. Include “Advanced Portfolio Review” in the subject line of your email, as well as the title of the workshop for which you are applying. Please provide a phone number where you can be reached and a link to your website. Submissions that do not follow the requested directions will not be reviewed. To be considered, we must receive portfolios by 5 PM MST Friday, Feb. 11th, 2022. If we receive your materials after Feb. 11th, you will be considered on a space-available basis. We will email you regarding your status on or before Friday, Feb. 25, 2022. If you are accepted, a deposit of $500 will be required within one week of notification of acceptance to hold your place. Housing will be assigned on a space-available basis upon enrollment.
