Winter Online Workshop with Douglas Holleley
The Practice of Teaching Photography
Related Member: Douglas Holleley
Although many graduate students in photography intend to "teach," the fact remains that teaching itself is not taught. The net result is that most teachers simply replicate the way they were themselves taught. This perpetuates a vicious cycle of bias and self-reflexive behavior. Thus, paradoxically in this new millennium, we have the intellectual trap of high modernism steering the teaching of photography that should be well and truly past (or if not past, critically evaluated).
Because this is the introductory workshop to the VASA Teaching Photography Certificate Program, creative, if not idiosyncratic, approaches to teaching will be explored. In other words, the participants will be encouraged to systematically question all previous automatic thinking and practice. The sessions will be a mix of the conceptual and practical, with spirited debate.
