Review Session with Elinor Carucci

Productive critique is essential for keeping your photographs on track. Elinor Carucci will lead an immersive review with a small group of students. Her critically acclaimed 2013 monograph Mother comprises personal views of both blissful and painful moments in her own family, taken over the course of nine years. Her powerful portraits of preemies were featured in TIME Magazine earlier this year; other editorial work has appeared in People, Newsweek, New York Magazine, and the New York Times.

Intimate Portraiture

Join celebrated portrait artist Andrea Modica for this intimate opportunity to observe her photographing a family at home. Under her guidance, you’ll learn how to put subjects at ease, observe their environment and expressions, and direct them into situations that will allow you to capture images that tell a story.

Inkjet Printing with Kylie Wright

Join master printer and retoucher Kylie Wright as she guides you through manipulating Photoshop to correct digital files, printing on an Epson 3800 inkjet printer, and receiving workflow breakdown tips for both color and black-and-white images.

The Evolving Landscape of Photography Publishing

The purpose of the workshop is to educate photographers about the possibility of disseminating and exhibiting their work through the physical medium of photo books. Designed for both students and professionals keen to make their project into a photography book, projects can be of any nature, personal, thematic, documentary etc. While the key takeaway from this workshop will be an edited and sequenced portfolio of images, photographers will gain great general insight into the world of photography book publishing.

Through the Lens: The Culture of Chinatown

Join visiting artist and documentary photographer Niko J. Kallianiotis on a photo-centered walk through the district. The workshop will start with a short discussion about how to capture images that convey a story. Then, you'll have time to take to the street, making your own photographs under the instructor's guidance. The workshop will finish with a final meet-up in which everyone will share their best work.
