What you'll learn in this portrait photography class:

Online Learning Class via Zoom

Portrait photographs are some of the most challenging to make. Portraits resolve our curiosities about each other and allow us to contemplate other’s existence. They allow us to stare in a way that is not socially acceptable outside the realm of photography. Portraits ask the photographer to consider ethical and representational dilemmas. How does one represent another? What can we learn about a subject from an image of them? How does one resolve the power dynamic between subject and photographer? Is it possible to create a portrait that suggests the complexity of a human being and their lived experiences? 

In this class we will explore the myriad ways in which contemporary and historical photographers have made portraits and discuss the underlying social and political issues that undergirds both subject and photographer. Students will share examples of past portrait projects and develop strategies for producing new work. Before the second weekend, students will be asked to produce portraits based upon discussion and lessons learned from the first weekend. 

 This course is strictly limited to 10 students.
