Identity and Narrative Photography with Linda Troeller

Residency Statement

In this workshop, we will explore personal ways of visual storytelling. You will develop your narrative photography by focusing on things you are truly devoted to, that are in-tune with your identity.

Through self-portraiture and portraits of colleagues you will ‘open up’ your sensitivity to enhance your vision. We will critique/discuss six jpgs from each persons’ recent project or valued images you will bring.

The second week’s theme is on ‘place’ in our rapidly changing contemporary life. What is intimate space? communal space? global space? At this point, each person commits to shoot their unique point of view. My assignments will accelerate techniques, and group photo walks will result in expressive, atmospheric images.

During the final week, we will go through the editing phase - the hardest area for many photographers to master. One-on-one meetings narrow shoots into compelling ’stories’.

Throughout the workshop, we will look at and discuss photo books you brought with you. We may also listen to music for inspiration.

Requirements to bring:

1.                 Digital camera you are acquainted with

2.                 Computer with photo editing software like iPhoto or similar

3.                 Items that refer to or can be used to alter identity (3 objects) such as wig, clothes, dolls, toys, amulet, hairbrush, historic/ vintage picture, body harness, …

4.                 Photo book that inspires you
