Looking In, Looking Out

9AM-5PM

Concept

In this weeklong workshop, students develop a cohesive photographic project originating from their own interests and experiences. Students are challenged to approach difficult themes: their interior emotional content or imbalances they perceive in the world around them.
While engaging with the world beyond their own, students create a series of images that illustrate an external concern. Subjects may include, but are not limited to significant events, upheaval, or desire. The course addresses the mechanics of editing, sequencing, and essay writing in support of bodies of work that convey an original point of view.

Digital photography, digital printing, prompts, demonstrations, lectures and discussions, one-on-one meetings with faculty, and field trips

Photography & New Media

Photography has always been a vital part of Anderson Ranch, one in which students explore visual storytelling through a variety of contexts and concepts. The program has uniquely evolved to focus on both traditional photography and new media— making it one of the only workshop settings of its kind. Three floors of the Fischer Photography Center house state-of-the-art equipment, including three photography studios, two Mac labs, a traditional darkroom, and a lighting studio with strobe and continuous lighting for photography and video.

All Photography workshops are rooted in the same idea—powerful art requires rigorous inquiry of techniques and ideas. We focus on technical skills, content and critical dialog. Students have access to color-managed media labs equipped with 24-inch iMacs, flatbed and film scanners, Epson printers, and cutting-edge software including Adobe Creative Cloud. When appropriate, students utilize strobe and tungsten lighting equipment, seamless backdrops, green screen, audio and video recording equipment and Epson large-format printers.

The Ranch Photography and New Media team creates an inspiring environment, allowing artists of all levels to explore lens-based media and the journey of artistic discovery in the unparalleled setting of the Colorado Rockies.

Photographic Collage: An Exploration of Photography and Painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,275
Code P0101-22

Join an engaging exploration of the synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. Students discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto painted surfaces, resulting in intriguingly layered works. Participants explore traditional collage and photomontage as well as master new methods that allow for opaque and translucent layers. Reductive methods, such as sanding and scraping, reveal the history of earlier photographic layers and suggest an archaeological approach to image development. The workshop emphasizes experimentation and exploratory approaches. Students produce a portfolio of physical examples of all techniques.
