Course Description

Photographer and writer Sal Taylor Kydd is well-versed in the exploration of personal narrative through the language of metaphor. This five-week online workshop invites you to develop your own creative voice by delving into memory and personal history—all while crafting lyrical photographs.

Sal offers evocative writing exercises that prompt you to uncover the deeper impulses behind your work and further examine them through symbolism, myth, and metaphor. Whether you are focusing on memory of place, your family tree, portraiture, or archetypes, you learn how the tools of photography can support your theme and transform what you see into a transcendent image.

Everything we do together is in service of helping you develop your artistic aesthetic, and our weekly meetings are divided between lecture time and group feedback sessions. Together we discuss the motivations behind your work and the personal vision you want to bring forward. First and foremost, our emphasis is on play and experimentation. You are encouraged to dive in and take risks!

Join a seasoned photographer-poet on a journey of exploration as you discover the alchemical intersection of memory and personal narrative in a unique hybrid workshop encompassing images and words.
