Photographers are regularly faced with editing and sequencing their work whether for portfolio, exhibition, website, juried show submission, or grant proposal. In this workshop we will look at the art of evaluating photographs and arranging them in a meaningful way for presentation. Beginning with the work of other photographers, we will examine the question of what makes a strong photograph, both as a single image and within a group. Next we will turn our attention to your photographs, sharing, editing, and sequencing them as a group. Students
should arrive with a group of 15-35 printed photographs they would like workshopped.
