Workshop with Michael Christopher Brown
Michael Christopher Brown will lead students through an intensive program of documentary project development, editing, and book making. This workshop is aimed at photographers with completed bodies of work or long term projects in development, who require advice on project development, editing skills, image selections, and layout. Participants who may wish to shoot a new project during the workshop will be able to do so. This workshop provides photographers with an opportunity to intensively analyze and develop one body of work, and develop their editing skills.
During this 7-day workshop, participants will be guided in the conception and realization of a personal photo project. Please come to the first session with a collection of digital or printed images of your work and some ideas for a project you will pursue during the week. After that, mornings will be group sessions devoted to reviewing and critiquing the images you shot the day before. In the afternoons, you will head into the city to further develop your project.
As the week progresses, we will invite some notable New York photographers and professionals of the field as special guests, to present and discuss their work to the class.
