A workshop dedicated to visual storytelling through the art of editing and ephemera.

Photographic Storytelling Through the Art of Editing is an intensive 3-day workshop, which will guide participants as they turn their projects into coherent and graphically impacting stories. By encouraging students to expand their visual storytelling skills through the incorporation of text, archival imagery and ephemera, the teachers will aid each photographer in making a multi-dimensional project in accordance with their personal visions.

The students will be asked to bring a photographic project, whether new or old, to be critiqued, developed and expanded. If you have not yet created a project, please bring a series of images that you would like to turn into a cohesive body of work. During this 3 day workshop participants will be guided in discovering the full potential of a photographic project through editing, group critiques and discussions and the expansion of their work to include ephemera, text and other non-traditional forms.

Laura & Kate ask that students prepare for the workshop by compiling their photographs or a project that they want expanded and collecting ephemera (archival photographs, found imagery, personal/found/collected text). Each day, the teachers will share their work and the work of others, discuss different methods of creating a multi-media body of work and share different processes and techniques.

By the end of the workshop, students will have been guided in realizing the potential forms of photographic expression- through editing, writing and the incorporation of multi-media elements to their photographic work. The projects realized during the workshop will be presented to the NYC photo community at the Photo Workshop New York loft space, during our monthly projections. Each participant’s project will also be showed on this website.
