Course Description

Night photography is synonymous with mystery and the unconscious. The dark draws us inward for self-reflection. These themes are heightened in this unusual time of quarantine. For many of us our cameras are our best tools for better understanding ourselves, our loved ones, and the world around us.

Whether we are using the ambient light of streetlamps, moonlight, or we are introducing a light source into the scene using strobes or flashlights, photographing at night reveals a new world — one not visible during the day.

Exploring the Secrets of the Night is a six-week, collaborative, online experience with fine-art photographer Jason Langer. Classroom sessions combine technical discussions and demonstrations with image presentations and digital darkroom tips. Jason’s weekly assignments can be easily completed around home. Image reviews happen the following week with the goal of developing a concise body of photographs investigating and celebrating image making at night.

Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.

about
Jason Langer

Jason Langer is best known for his psychological and noirish visions of contemporary urban life. Secret City, his first monograph published by Nazraeli Press, depicts night and dusk scenes of various cities with “carefully crafted compositions reminiscent of the symbolist photographers, and swathes of meticulously printed deep black tones characteristic of the gelatin silver process…as much Hopper and Raymond Chandler as Steichen” (Bomb Magazine).

Over the past two decades Langer has developed a photographic language which has been described variously as “cinematic” and “poetic,” “contemplative” and “iconographic,” as well as “haunting” and “romantic.” Avoiding staged tableaux on the one hand, and the “deadpan” aesthetic popular in much contemporary photography on the other, his images strive always to capture the unanticipated or chance moment, layered with timeless drama and dynamism.

He has published three monographs: Secret City (2006, Nazraeli Press) and Possession (2013, Nazraeli Press) and Twenty Years (Radius Books, 2015), spanning 20 years of his career. It is the first survey of his work.
