MASTER CLASS: LONG-TERM PROJECT DEVELOPMENT WITH TONY FOUHSE

This masterclass will introduce you to a philosophy, strategies and approaches to photography that will add nuance, depth and complexity to the work you produce. Your camera will transform from a machine that merely records what you see into a tool of discovery. It doesn’t matter what your present subject matter is, this course will show you how to expand your photo practice.

After the first four sessions, which will happen weekly, we will meet once a month for the next eleven months to keep your progress on-track.

In the first four classes I will present examples of portfolios that show how complexity can be woven into bodies of work, how disparate images can be combined to create new meanings and how these new meanings can illuminate your relationship to the world. Mainly, though, we will look at and discuss the work you bring in. There will be practical advice on how to initiate and proceed with personal projects and I’ll suggest tactics and techniques to expand its scope. This process will will include assembling your work into short sequences, narrative arcs, that will bring forward facets of what you have been looking at, considering and photographing. Discussion, suggestions, tactics and practical advice will ensue. Through doing the work, exploring possibilities, embracing failure and being open to surprise, your understanding of what a camera can do will be greatly expanded.

After these 4 classes we will meet once a month. This additional time will help you flesh out the thrust of your project and will provide the time and impetus for you to create a body of work that embraces complexity and creates new meanings through the relationship of the images and your perspective on the world.
