ICP Photography Workshop: The Personal Narrative - Photographing With Light, Style, and Intent
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.

CANCELLED: Artifishal: The Road to Extinction is Paved with Good Intentions
CANCELLED. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have to cancel this program. We hope to reschedule the screening so please check back!
Produced by Patagonia Films, Artifishal is a film about wild rivers and wild fish that explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. The film traces the impact of fish hatcheries, and the extraordinary amount of public money wasted on an industry that hinders wild fish recovery, pollutes our rivers and contributes to the problem it claims to solve. Artifishal also dives beneath the surface of the open-water fish farm controversy, as citizens work to stop the damage done to public waters and our remaining wild salmon.
Dr. Carl Safina, who is featured in the film, will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
