|Andrea Modica: Environmental Portrait||Sat-Sun, October 3-4|
this hands-on workshop you’ll find the time and Andrea’s encouragement
to concentrate on using photography to
reveal people’s lives, stories, and worlds, for both literal and/or
emotional and creative narratives. Combining portfolio review,
discussions, and field work, you’ll learn
how to feel comfortable while making
the images of people you want to make - be it of family members, the
life of an unknown (to you) community resident, or models. Photographing
people can help reveal your own stories and open you up (to fears/differences/personalities), while forging new common grounds with your subject.
the course of our two days together, Andrea will engage you in meaningful
reviews of your work and goals with discussions investigating fine
art and editorial work, interpretation
and style, and address ethical and
legal issues pertaining to the use of portraits in publications and
exhibitions. Field trips to make new
work will take us into the colorful environs
of Woodstock, where you’ll have an opportunity to photograph a
multi-aged creative family and explore both traditional and non-
Modica works with an 8x10
camera to slow down the process of picture making and to create intimate
dramas. One of her images taught her that, until that moment, she
had been photographing like a tourist. Learning to contemplate the
fictitious town of Treadwell in upstate NY, she made pictures that were
mysterious and portrayed the anguish of adolescence and the idea of growing up. The
photographer balances sadness with empathy and brings a spiritual
dimension to her work. Modica’s images include photographs of a halfway
house, a Catholic girls school, and a minor league baseball team.
Andrea’s photographs have been
compared to those of Diane Arbus,
Julia Margaret Cameron, and her
friend, Sally Mann. A graduate of Yale University, her work has
been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of
Modern Art, and International Center of Photography, among many
prestigious venues. New York Times, Elle, New Yorker,
American Photo, and Vanity
featured her work and she
has five monographs, Treadwell, Minor
League, Real Indians, Barbara,
and Human Being. The Edwynn Houk Gallery in NYC represents her work.
