The Notion of Home
This online course features the following types of interaction:
- Live meetings
- Live critiques
Photographers have long investigated notions of home in their work; a kitchen table, books, paintings, wooden carvings, flowers in vases, intimacy, and family. During these uncertain times and with the limitations that are in place, how can we find complexity, beauty, and mystery through photographs made in and around our home? In this workshop, we will explore these concepts as it relates to our personal experiences with domestic space. In each online session, students will learn about historical and contemporary image-makers who use this framework along with editing demonstrations and group critiques. The goal of this workshop is to provide students with a conceptual and technical fluency that they may apply within their practice.
Required media: DSLR camera preferred, or iPhone equivalent. Basic computer skills are necessary, as well as the ability to edit and download images using software such as Photoshop (students must have their own individual subscription to this service).
