Producing work that is truly one’s own and developing a personal aesthetic is an ongoing process for any practicing photographer. This two-day workshop instructed by ICP Faculty Bastienne Schmidt is for students who would like to develop a more personal expression in their photographic work. Discussions address composition, media, lighting, print style, and emotional meaning in imagery, as well as the works of master photographers. Students complete exercises designed to develop a personal voice, hone their editing skills, and pinpoint the unique elements in their work. Each student receives assignments specifically related to his/her past work. Questions reflect upon the concept of photography and memory. We explore the relationship between photography, narrative, and personal memory.
If you are a SAC or ICP member, please call the Education Office at ICP to register at 212.857.0001.
Mixed media artist Bastienne Schmidt uses photography, painting, and mixed-media work to investigate how objects and images can carry the memory of time. As the daughter of an archeologist and an ardent traveler, the artist’s work was initially inspired by the varied ancient and modern cultures she encountered. Her most recent series has incorporated pieces of domestic life, with espresso grains, lint, and soap representing material traces of the everyday.
