In the language of photojournalism, we constantly refer to “the story.” Indeed, photographers often call themselves “visual story-tellers.” Yet it is not always clear how to define and tell ""the story."" In the digital era, the range of possible narrative approaches has expanded, leading to new challenges and opportunities. As documentary photography confronts a historic lack of diversity in our practice, the question of who tells the stories is a major concern. Through class discussion, looking closely at relevant work and assignments, this workshop helps students to find their narrative voice and define the stories they want to tell.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.

For the first session, bring examples of your work--however you would like to show it. It is not necessary to be an elaborated story but the images should give a sense of your eye and your priorities.
