Your life is interesting. Really! What seems to be mundane today will be fascinating when photographed well, especially when viewed a bit later when you have a little more distance from your current story. That idea of story is central to good photography. Many people struggle with how, or even whether, to photograph their everyday lives. It turns out that if you just photograph what is in front of you, the photos will tell the story on their own.
In this six-week workshop we will focus on what is closest to you in your life. Each person will create a snapshot of their lives over a one-month period. By shooting each week, with an image review from the instructor and your peers, you will reveal the ongoing story that is your life. It is a form of self-portraiture without ever actually photographing your own face. We’ll be more interested in the seemingly mundane details of your morning routine, your family, your hobbies, friends, work, your closet, yard and the endless small details that make up your life.
