Since its inception, photography has been used as an implement to create representations of the world around us. The portrait reflects back a carefully constructed vision of not only the subject, but the artistic desires of the image maker. In this workshop, students dissect what it means to make a picture of another person, exploring the dynamic—and often complicated—relationships between photographer, camera, subject and viewer.
