HOW I LOOK AT PHOTOGRAPHS – A Workshop with W.M. Hunts.

Sunday, June 23nd, 2019

10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Ticket price: $100

Admission: 15 participants

From W.M. Hunt:

I have been looking at pictures for a long time. “How I look at Photographs” is my workshop about that: considering, thinking about and reacting to them; and it’s about being able to talk about photographs directly, sensitively and sensibly. I’ll do a great deal of talking and show lots of visuals in the first part. For the second part, you will do the talking. I want you to bring printed out copies of three photographs that you did not make but that you think are great. Bring an open mind, some patience, some nerve, and a sense of play.

This is for anyone interested in photography.
