How do we see others through the camera’s lens? In this intensive workshop, we will explore new ways identity can be expressed, examined, created, and conflated through photographic portraiture. With vibrant discussions, lectures, and readings, we will take a close look at contemporary practices of portraiture in photography. Students will create new portraits and have critiques of their work. Whether you work in self-portraiture or photograph others such as family members or strangers, this class will help you gain a deeper understanding of creative portrait making and further insight into yourself as a photographer.
