Monthly Mentoring and Critique Program with Edie Bresler (8 sessions In Person)
October 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A mentoring and critique program for conscientious and self motivated photographers seeking to broaden how they create and think about photography. Participants will get to know one another through monthly critiques and brainstorming sessions. These ideas and suggestions will help hone strengths and elicit a deeply intentional artistic voice. Contemporary and historical photographers and perhaps relevant critical theory may also be discussed.
The group will be led by Edie Bresler, an award winning photographer who is passionate about photography as a medium and method of self discovery. Bresler has been teaching photography and critical thinking for over thirty-five years. She was most recently a juror for the Somerville Arts Council Fellowships and has been a reviewer at numerous portfolio reviews throughout New England.
