In this workshop we will work to tell stories with images. We will work together to engage in reading visuals. We will practice visual thinking. We will closely look into the strength of a single image as well as the tedious task of bringing together multiple single images to make a meaningful visual narrative. We will begin to trust and explore creative processes. This intensive two-week workshop aims to be a learning ground for photographers who’re technically sound with digital photography and wish to take a step ahead into visual storytelling.
