Photographer Ed Kashi is a member of the highly respected VII Photo Agency and is known for his penetrating and insightful photography on social and political issues both domestic and international. He is equally renowned for his workshops, which challenge photographers at all skill levels to devote their time and talents to create compelling stories through pictures. As he has told previous workshop attendees “We’re all here because we love photography but for each of us it means something different.”
DCP is happy to bring Ed back to Dallas to lead a workshop on the concept of Working Near and Far. Over four days you’ll meet at the studio and go out in the field to discover what photography means to you in the context of visual story telling. Some of the ideas and topics that Ed will explore with you:
- Near: Photographing a detail in your home that tells where you live and what you do to.
- Personal history: Telling a story in pictures of your own life.
- Keeping in close: How to approach and photograph someone you have access to.
- Finding the exotic in your own back yard: “You don’t have to go to Afghanistan to make great pictures.”
- Far: discussing how photography can report and affect geopolitical issues.
- How social media and image sharing platforms like Instagram can be used to curate and publish visual stories.
