The workshop will consider how the materiality of a photograph affects us, both as photographers and as viewers. By looking closely at each participants portfolio, we will establish an understanding of not only what is being seen, but also of why things are seen in particular ways; of how we control the viewer.
There will be demonstrations of how the photograph is manipulated to bring it into alignment with both truth and vision. There will be a short photographic and sequencing assignment.
