This weekend intensive is designed for artists working with images who are looking to not only refine their portfolio, but also to get their work out there and seen, by producing a portfolio that can live on, in a sustainable way and in unique forms. Co-taught by two artists with backgrounds in photography, book making and collaborative practices, students will receive dynamic, yet complementary perspectives that offer multifaceted feedback. Photography is an ever-changing medium, and images can have many lives and finalized forms that we will examine to give students the most thoughtful and useful contemporary portfolio. Through critiques, artist statement writing exercises and portfolio practice techniques, students will learn how to make their portfolio succinct and applicable to varying audiences.
