with Jennifer Murray
This critique-focused workshop is an opportunity to share current photographic projects with peers, discuss project development overtime, as well as discuss best practices for preparing work for exhibition or professional portfolio reviews. Conversation will be tailored to the groups needs for advancing their projects, finding avenues for sharing work within the community and sustaining a long-term project.
The workshop is ideal for photographic makers at any level of practice – career or hobby-based . The focus will be on developing a critical dialog and establishing good self-evaluation skills in addition to editing and sequencing a series of photographs.
Participants should plan to bring 1- 2 photo-based series as a digital PDF that they can share with the group.
