Featured Course


Peripatetic Photography



In this weekend intensive, photographers will approach walking as a conscious contemplative act. Over the course of two days we'll examine how the history of walking and photography are inextricably linked through slide presentations, demonstrations, discussion, critique, and (naturally) by going on a walk ourselves. While walking, we will work to heighten our awareness and observe the potential of our everyday surroundings. We'll also address the challenges of sequencing images made through chance encounters and stream-of-consciousness photographing. (12 hours/All Levels)
