A workshop dedicated to exploring long-term project development and expansion of photography to multi-media platforms.

The Expanded Image is an intensive 3-day workshop, which focuses on guiding students in developing a long-term photography project. Based on years of experience in developing several long form series, Stefano will discuss the evolving landscape of photographic practice. Through examples of his own work as well as the work of his contemporaries, Stefano will discuss the shift towards multi-media platforms, the intersection of editorial and personal work and the necessity of collaboration across different fields.

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 inspirational materials.

The first day of this workshop is dedicated to sharing inspiration, viewing Stefano’s work and processes, and discussing the changing form of photography. Stefano will present multi-media projects, new exhibition possibilities and editorial collaborations. He will guide students through this new landscape of fine art towards a sustainable and successful approach to photography. The second day will be spent reviewing students past work and critiquing and developing strategies for expanding its audience and outcome.

By the end of the workshop, students will have been guided in realizing the potential of creating a longterm project and the various forms in which it can be presented. 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.
