The Photo Series: Reframing Your Neighborhood

This is a class for new and advanced photographers interested in making a photo series. How do photographs change our understanding of a familiar place? What if we abandon our constant search for the new an unexplored?  In this course, students will develop a set of cohesive images that tells a story about their neighborhood based on several repeated trips to a single place.  Weekly shooting assignments and in-class exercises will aid students in sharpening their observational skills as they learn to talk about their photographs.  Instructor-led presentations on contemporary artists will provide additional examples and ideas for students to consider as they complete their projects.

This course is taught remotely via Zoom. You will need your Hudson Valley username and password to access the course.
