Why write about photography? Just as an image frames a visual viewpoint, analytic writing offers unique and enriching perspectives on what we see. Learn to view and write about photography more critically in this two-day workshop with “What Will You Remember” editors Elin Spring and Suzanne Révy. Through guided observation, discussion, writing exercises, and one-on-one instructor critiques, you will begin to develop your voice for writing engagingly about photography – including your own. At the end of the workshop, you will have a polished piece of writing and a fresh approach to understanding the photographic medium.
