New York City is one of the most impressive and oppressive cities in the world. Its design and density can be awe inspiring and overwhelming. From the majesty of Central Park to crush of the city subway system, those who live in and visit the city have to navigate this environment on a daily basis.
In this workshop we will investigate how the built and natural environments impact those who live within it. We’ll consider the way people live in a modern, fast paced environment and what that means for individuals and society. The workshop is taught by Amy Stein, an educator and artist living in New York City whose work deals with our evolving isolation from community, culture and the environment.
Students will explore and photograph the city while pursuing their own project that addresses the way people live within the modern urban environment. Working over the course of the week students will build a series of images that explores the built and natural landscape its impacts on society. Students will be encouraged to shoot intensely throughout the week and will meet for daily editing and critique sessions.
The workshop will also include discussions of historical and contemporary photography that investigates the social landscape and talks by local photographers whose work explores these themes.
This workshop will be fun and challenging. You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of your own artistic intentions and a developed series of images that addresses the realities and challenges of modern life.
