In the 60s a handful of photographers began to challenge the established practice of documenting the unfamiliar and exotic and directed their focus towards the ordinary and the everyday adopting a more subjective and introspective stance. Photographers like Garry Winogrand, Diane Arbus and Lee Frielander and later Stephen Shore and the Bechers pioneered new narratives and set the stage for photographers like Doug Rickard, Alec Soth and Richard Billingham. 

This workshop will focus on exploring the subjective nature of contemporary documentary photography and the importance of developing a personal style. 

Students must have some technical experience in photography and a body of work completed or in progress, or an idea of what they want to develop.  

During the workshop we will review work that illustrates the evolution of documentary photography from the New Documentarians to contemporary trends in today’s concept-driven work. 

Attendees will participate developing their own projects. They will receive feedback on their projects and provide feedback to others during group discussions. In addition to critique and photo theory there will be practical editing exercises and homework assignments. 

Each day part of the class will be set aside to review and evaluate the group’s progress.
