Explore your photographic motivations in a truly unique workshop. In this course, we 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 you are asked to approach a subject or subjects utilizing both hunting and farming practices. Participants are given an overview of histories of each style of image making.
Media & Techniques:
Students use digital cameras, a digital work flow with Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, and digital printmaking techniques.
We participate in daily activities including presentations on artists working within these camps, short field trips, discussions of student work and various related readings. Each participant works on an individual project that allows them to explore their conceptual/formal photographic relationship within the concepts of hunting and farming.
