BRIAN FINKE: “DOCUMENTARY STORYTELLING”
AUGUST 27 – OCTOBER 15, 2023
SEPTEMBER 15-17, 2023, BOWEN ISLAND, BC
In this class, participants will focus on a commitment to developing and completing a long-term personal documentary photography storytelling project. Classes will be devoted to project reviews, critiques, and discussions about practical approaches and technical variations of the medium. It will also address magazine work for hire, book publishing, gallery representation, and how to use the work created in this class to build out a commercial career or art practice. Participants should come to class already working on a project or have project ideas in mind to discuss that they can readily photograph throughout the course.
The class will allow for the unfolding of a body of work over time. The first class will meet online to discuss projects, then for a 3-day in-person workshop on Bowen Island. Three weeks later, each participant will meet for a 30-minute one-on-one online session to discuss their work. The final class is a 4-hour online meeting where everyone presents their story and final project.
Schedule: Meets online on Sunday August 27, noon-4pm EDT New York time (group session)+ in-person on Bowen Island from Friday September 15 to Sunday September 17 + online on Saturday October 7 or Sunday October 8 (1:1 meetings) and on Sunday October 15 (final group session)
This program is limited to 12 participants.
