This class delves into creative ways to capture your immediate surroundings—no matter where you are—with images that express the feeling of summer. After months of lockdown and social distancing, how might you explore your immediate environment? We experiment with blending memories and past personal experiences with our “new normal” by examining ways to add text or photos from our archives and discuss how to photograph non-tangibles, like heat, smell, or feelings. We also cover different approaches to telling personal stories by studying the work of artists such as Nina Katchadourian, Hiraki Sawa, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Robert Adams, and Daniel Ramos, among others. By the end of class, students will have created a visual diary of their summer and deepened their creative and artistic practice. This course is limited to 12 students.

Prerequisite: Open to All Skill Levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
