STREET PHOTOGRAPHY / ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAIT / LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY / STORYTELLING
EDITING / PERSONAL VISION / LONG TERM PROJECT
George and Vanessa will focus on documentary as a way of story telling. They will address the issues of documentary photography in a broader context, with a focus on sequencing – putting together groups of photographs to create a coherent body of work ready for presentation.
Together with the tutors, the participants will look at the content of their personal projects, analyzing the treatment of the subject matter as well as the editing and sequencing of the images. George and Vanessa will direct the group through programs of shooting, reviews, group critiques, mentoring and editing sessions providing the opportunity to learn and improve one’s photographic skills of storytelling.
✔ As the week progresses, we will invite some notable New York photographers and professionals of the field as special guests, to present and discuss their work to the class.
✔ The projects realized during the workshop will be edited in a collective multimedia piece. Each participant’s project will be shown on this website after the workshop.
