Storytelling with Photography (five-session workshop)

Photography is often described as having an inherent narrative quality, but how can we create a cohesive visual story? In this course, students will practice storytelling by building their own photographic series through a five-week project. Class time will consist of weekly critiques and inspirational lectures that feature artists working in the realm of storytelling through documentary and personal narratives. Students will be exposed to a variety of storytelling approaches that emphasize the importance of sequence. Students’ ideas will be enhanced through the practice of storyboarding, editing, and sequencing photographs that will culminate into their final narrative presentation.
