The Long Term Project: Conceptualizing/Managing/Creating
Join Lois Conner for a one-day workshop designed to help photographers navigate the life cycle of a long-term project.
This workshop is for anyone who has an idea for, or is working on, a long-term photographic project. Conner will offer expert guidance on how best to conceptualize a project, manage it over the long-term, and create the final expression of the work in exhibitions, books, or some other form. Participants should bring an idea for a project or work that is currently in progress.
Who should attend?
This workshop will benefit photographers who are immersed in an ongoing project, as well as those at the beginnings of one. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the creative arc involved in working long-term, with practical advice for seeing a project through to the end.
Participants should come to class with a 15-20 image portfolio and a project statement.
(Prints are preferred but digital is also permitted.)
