Location: Photo Workshop New York, 550 Myrtle Ave, 11205 brooklyn, United States
Workshop Calendar: June 12-18 2016
Michael Christopher Brown (Magnum Photos) will lead students through an intensive program of documentary project development, editing, and book making. This workshop is aimed at photographers with completed bodies of work or long term projects in development, who require advice on project development, editing skills, image selections, and layout.
This workshop provides photographers with an opportunity to intensively analyze and develop one body of work, and develop their editing skills. Participants will be asked to bring a digital presentation of their work, as well as additional images or ephemera from the project that they will be working on. Participants who do not have a completed or in progress body of work, will be able to start a new project in New York during the workshop.
This workshop will follow the publication of Michael Christopher Brown’s first book, Libyan Sugar, published by Twin Palms. Libyan Sugar follows the journeys of the photographer Michael Christopher Brown between China, Libya, and his home in the US. In Libya he encounters war, injury and death of colleagues. The project reveals the anatomy of contemporary war documentary and the physical and emotional toll that it takes on the storytellers and their families.
