2022 Summer Workshops

Joanne Dugan Writing Pictures: A Collaborative Workshop for Photographers & Writers July 21 to July 26, 2019 Tuition: $650 Workshop: 9am-12pm Discipline: Photography OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

This highly collaborative workshop will encourage and inspire you to combine text and photographs to tell your unique stories. We will spend the week making photographs about words and writing words about photographs, using our own work as prompts, as well as responding to the work of fellow classmates. We will also examine and discuss the practices of master artists and explore books, conceptual projects and digital formats that successfully combine the image and the written word. You will leave with a broad understanding of the image/text form and how it can enhance an ongoing creative practice and further your authentic voice. All digital camera formats are welcome, including android/iphones. Feedback is individualized so experience at all levels–both in photography and writing–is welcome. Bring a laptop for editing if available.
