Course Description

Your best photographs are the most personal and intimate ones. Photography is not only a potent and direct means for communicating with others, it also can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and provide you with rich, meaningful imagery.

Being on a photographic journey means that you are part visual poet, part private investigator, as you learn to identify and photograph the subjects you want to better understand — in addition to creating photographs that also help you grow as an individual.

In this new and thoughtful online workshop led by fine-art photographer Jason Langer, we seek to refine the unique subject matter as well as the personal vision of each participant. We discover how to make dynamic, personal photographs as part of one’s daily lifestyle, using tools of self and artistic discovery that will serve you for a lifetime.

Together we look at the works of photographers who have taken on this growth/ investigator approach to create some of the most iconic photographs from the history of photography. These inspirational sources help us develop finer expressions of our own ideas. Ultimately, this photographic journey with Jason leads us to self-discovery and new paths.

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.
