Workshop: Finding the Universal in Photographic Narratives with Elinor CarucciSunday, October 5, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 1, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Aperture Foundation
547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor
New York, N.Y.
Join Elinor Carucci for this critique-based workshop designed to aid those who wish to observe, consider, and respond to the world around them with a camera—creating work that, while specific to the story at hand, is also universal. This workshop will enable students to enhance their vision and style while delving deeper into the emotions, layers, and nuances of their images. On the first day, Carucci will briefly introduce her own approach to storytelling in both her personal and editorial work, followed by a critique and discussion of each student’s current portfolio and recommendations for how to bring their project to the next level. New directions will be identified and assignments given for the next class meeting, occurring four weeks later to allow time for each student to make work in response to their particular assignment. Subjects and styles distinct from Carucci’s own work are very welcome, as is commercial/editorial work.
Please bring one or more bodies of work that can serve as a starting point, or that you want to expand and develop. Please bring a minimum of 25 prints or digital files.
