Explore your photographic motivations in a truly unique workshop where students look at two categories of photographers: hunters who capture their images as they exist in the world, and farmers who cultivate their photos via staged or constructed strategies. Both camps of image making are valid and wide ranging. Students are guided through a series of exercises in which they are asked to approach a subject or subjects utilizing both hunting and farming practices. Participants are given an overview of their respective histories.
