Photography Atelier is a 12-session portfolio and project building course for emerging to advanced photographers offered through the Griffin Museum of Photography. Now in its 25th year, the Atelier class 34 was led by photographer Molly Lamb.
Exhibiting photographers of Photography Atelier 34 are:
Lora Brody Sisters
My hand-made Ziatype photographic images explore relationships between sisters, opening a window into their personal narratives.
Joy Bush Places I Never Lived
While photographing the facades of houses in a sleuth-like fashion, I fantasize about who lives there and what life is like on the inside. It is about imagining my life, and who I would be, in a different place.
Marcy Cohen The Birds, the Sky and the Sea
This series is about escaping the loneliness and horror of the pandemic through an enhanced connection with the natural world. The subject matter birds, the sky and the sea are metaphors for a world beyond everyday concern and are intended to provoke positive emotions during dark times.
David Comora The Space Between is both stimulus and response – a space to
experience the world anew.
Kathy DeCarlo-Plano Quiet
Images that find the tranquility, quietness and peace that is to be found in the world.
Miren Etcheverry My Father’s Story
This project is about my father’s story. In 1940, when he was 15 years old, he escaped German occupied France to join General de Gaulle’s Free French forces.
Eric Frere Color at the End of the Tunnel is a series of images taken at Maverick T Station over the pandemic during the winter and spring. It captures the transition from a sense of despair to a glimmer of hope.
Cassandra Goldwater Surface Tensions
Goldwater’s project explores surfaces as boundaries.
Deborah Kaplan Syllabary for a Natural World
It has been said that if we do not have a word for something, it is unacknowledged, hard to bring into consciousness as an actual thing in the world. This series, Syllabary for a Natural World, reaches back to prehistoric expressions of mark making to explore the innate complexity and language of the natural world, to restart a process of abstraction and understanding.
Matthew Kaufman Barren Riches
My images focus on the beauty inherent in the variety of un-adorned structure of trees and the relation of trees to their surroundings.
Carole LoConte Tedesco – They Existed
This project arose out of my lifelong interest in the visual language of death, having grown up around colonial New England cemeteries and the powerful imagery carved on gravestones. I photograph them as a way of honoring those lives and remembering, even in a small way, the people who lived them.
Rebecca Loy Reflections
This series uses flowers to represent our humanity and how we seek to come to terms with our reflections, both inside and out.
Maureen McKeon Passing Through is a contemplation of transition, impermanence, and remembrance as I enter the final stage of my life.
Camille Neville In ‘Musings’ I used my love of music and my own experiences as a musician to help spark creativity in my photography.
Hope Pashos – Ordered Chaos
Long exposure photography takes many moments of chaos and synthesizes them into one, singular, moment of order. Each is a series of movements captured as one frozen split second, never to be captured the same way again.
Anne Piessens Origin Stories
These handmade collage images interpret fragments of my family ancestry, as experienced by girls and women.
Anne Smith Duncan Are You Listening? Do You See Me?
Research indicates that trees communicate with each other through scent, vibrations, and underground symbiotic networks. Their “wood-wide-web” mimics our human neural and social networks.
Mike Slurzberg Greenscapes looks at green energy devices, and considers their influence on the world we see.
Lynne Stuart Lamson Reflecting on Water explores the rippled reflections on the water and the intricate designs within the water’s surface in an effort to be present in the moment, to gain new perspectives, and to wonder.
Aimee Towey-Landry Wandering Along the Horizon is an exploration of constructed color, light, and shadow evoking sculptural qualities and movement.
Maria A. Verrier Can’t You Hear Me
A buried voice comes alive in the making of these images, piecing together subconscious rumblings. Like a dream, the succession of images attempts to reconstruct the ideas, emotions, and sensations of a seventeen-year-old’s chaos.
Andrew Wang Always an Outsider is a visual exploration of how the feeling of racism has become a pervasive thought in my life.
Jeanne Widmer The Longing of Silence
With this series, I am exploring some of the feelings of the pandemic: hemmed in with no end in sight, longing for family, for one on one contact with friends, for freedom from fear, and for ways I could comfort the many children and teenagers struggling and losing so much during those long days.
