Keith Johnson: Finding the Social Landscape
Sat-Sun, June 13-14
Upstate New York is full of both natural and man-made wonders. From the Hudson River to the Catskill Mountains, from wildlife to industry and from the local residents to the visiting tourists; this workshop will investigate how the natural landscape and the social landscape collide to offer up grand photographic possibilities.
Walking in the footprints of some of history’s greatest artists, we will investigate our surrounding area and all the wonders that encompass it. This workshop will encourage you to find a personal way of seeing and interpreting a multi-layered environment. We will seek out the social landscape that surrounds us and begin to create stories and observations about it. Students will share their individual opinions about what photographing the landscape means within their work. There will be lectures, critiques and shooting trips in the surrounding area and beyond in search of the photographic holy grail. This is a workshop for fine art photographers, professional photographers and experienced amateurs who want to explore the photographic possibilities that are just outside the door.
Come spend the weekend in Woodstock photographing a wonderful array of landscapes, towns and history.
Please bring: a portfolio of 10-20 images, your favorite camera and lots of film/memory cards.
