Workshop Overview

How we photograph the landscape can be a direct expression of values, beliefs and desires. This workshop helps students practice getting unstuck from passive, formulaic ways of representing landscapes, and tap into their own unique vision and values, leading to active and innovative photographic interpretations of the landscape. Core concepts from Godfrey’s book "Active Landscape Photography: Theoretical Groundwork" will be introduced and applied. This workshop combines straightforward, accessible methodologies with critical explorations concerning photography’s influence over how we understand, value and treat landscapes. We will confront unexamined aesthetic ideals, and take on the challenge of making new kinds of photographs.
