CANCELED: Telling Stories with Photographs

, Photographer

UPDATE: THIS CLASS IS CANCELED.

What makes a good photograph? How do you make an evocative image? How can one moment -- literally a fraction of a second -- say so much more than another? How can we use elements of photography -- light, composition, body language -- to create strong images? These are a few of the questions we'll explore in the class Telling Stories With Photographs. We will deconstruct different photos, as well as photo series as a whole, to help us answer these questions, and as a way to help guide your work. I will be providing links to photographers in the coming weeks to give us a place to start. I would also advise that you come to class with at least one photograph (either your own, or one that you find compelling) and be prepared to share it. It doesn't have to be a printed photo, though that would be great -- a URL or image file will work fine.

Bex Finch

Photographer

Through a 365 Days self-portrait project, I learned how to use my camera and how to photograph other people, and I became passionate about photography and confident with the idea that I am an artist. I would love to be able to share that with others. I have been working for three years on a project called The Sleepwalker, which involves self-portraits of myself and portraits of my father who has Alzheimer's disease. Self-portraiture is arguably the most important part of my photography as a whole. My fine art work -- primarily environmental portraiture and landscape -- uses film and digital photographs as well as Instagram, where I have over 165,000 followers. I lived in San Francisco for nearly 4 years, in that time doing graduate work in photography at San Francisco Art Institute. I was featured in a short documentary as a trendsetting artist in San Francisco. I now live and work in Brooklyn.
