Master Class: Whitney Johnson and Kris Graves and Long Term Projects
Kris Graves, Whitney Johnson
In this masterclass, students develop their documentary or narrative-based projects with renowned photographer Kris Graves and creative executive Whitney Johnson, with the goal of completing a body of work and preparing it for distribution outlets. Over the course of a one-week workshop and additional virtual mentorship meetings, participants get advice on researching and producing their projects, receive feedback/critique on their aesthetic approach, edit and sequence their work, hear real-life case studies from guest artists, and actively participate in a creative community of peers. This workshop also will meet virtually in December for a final critique session. Portfolios will be accepted on a rolling basis until February 17th, 2023. Submit your portfolio by January 27th for priority consideration. 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 Workshop Manager Esther Nooner at email@example.com The single PDF must be less than 10 MB to be considered. Include 5-10 images of your work 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.
