Join artist and educator Lisa Kereszi in three-day workshop to help you write an artist statement that sounds like you, and not like someone else’s idea of who you are. We will do short writing prompts together aimed at helping you tap into your visual memories and develop a voice that help the viewer understand what it is you are trying to share with your photographs. Be prepared to share your writing with the group, as well as have a conversation one-on-one with the instructor. By the end of the week, each participant should have at least a solid first draft of a written piece about their own work that can be adapted for various uses, such as grant-writing, portfolio reviews and exhibition submissions.


Lisa Kereszi is a photographer whose work investigates questions of escapism and fantasy in daily life, and deals as well with family history and its effects. Based in Connecticut, she shows with Yancey Richardson in NYC, and has work in the collections of the Met, the Getty and the Whitney, among others. Kereszi has 4 books in print, including Governors Island and Joe’s Junk Yard, and heads the undergraduate art department at Yale.
