Please come to the first session with a collection of digital or printed images of your previous work and some ideas for a project you will pursue during the week. After that, mornings will be group sessions devoted to reviewing and critiquing the images you shot the day before. In the afternoons, you will head into the city to further develop your project. As the week progresses, we will also invite some notable New York photographers to present and discuss their work to the class.The projects realized during the workshop will be presented to the NYC photo community during a final slideshow party.
