The workshop will consider how the materiality of a photograph affects us, both as photographers and as viewers. We will establish an understanding of not only what is being seen, but also of why things are seen in particular ways. 

Each participant will go through a preliminary monitor and printer calibration setup. Reference prints will be sent to the participant beforehand. During the workshop, high-resolution digital reproductions of well-known photographs will be closely studied. There will be demonstrations of how the photograph is manipulated to bring it into alignment with both truth and vision. There will be a portfolio-viewing and sequencing assignment. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a clearer understanding of how to fully articulate their work.

He is currently working in rural communities in Haiti, Tanzania and Tennessee, designing models for community development through photography. His works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; Princeton University Museum; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Yale University Museum, New Haven; and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh, among others.
