This intensive residency offers participants the opportunity to work in technologically advanced facilities with a renowned faculty to bring critical rigor to the serious photographer. While working in all phases of black-and-white, color, digital processes and alternative procedures, the primary function of the program is to advance the content of the artist's work through one-on-one and group critiques, lectures, museum and gallery visits, and dialogue with other participants.
Critiques and lectures complement the independent work, and together these elements form an intense program encouraging creativity, learning and progress. Faculty critiques - individual and group - will be given Monday through Thursday. Special lectures given by guest artists, critics and gallery directors are scheduled approximately once a week, and are designed to give further insight into the realities of the working photographer. The program culminates in an exhibition.
Participants have access to studio equipment and color printing facilities, digital imaging and output centers, studio lighting systems, and a variety of camera sizes and formats. Facilities are available Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am to 10:00 pm; Friday and Saturday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Staff technicians are available for assistance and technical support.
Faculty and lecturers have included Vince Aletti, Josef Astor, Corinne May Botz, Elinor Carucci, Jessica Craig-Martin, Barbara Ess, Michael Foley, Jenny Gage, Sally Gall, Peter Garfield, Joe Maida, Penelope Umbrico and Eric Weeks.
