Hone your observational, picture making and story telling skills in this photography class held at the Aperture Foundation headquarters in Chelsea. Learn the language of photography, delve into its history, and practice how to read an image in order to develop your own photographic vision. Each class begins with a conversation about photographic “seeing” and a critique of the previous class’ images, followed by lunch and a photographic field trip to the Highline, Chelsea Market, or the Hudson River Park to tackle the assignment of the week. This class is digitally based; cameras will be provided but students may bring their own digital cameras and laptops to class if they wish. Alexis Lambrou is a photojournalist and holds a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology. In addition to working for the Magnum Foundation, she has taught photography at the Brooklyn Community Arts & Media High School and at the Community Darkroom in Rochester, NY.
