“Eccentric: deviating from the recognized or customary practice; unconventional.”
One of most enriching and exciting ways to grow as both photographer and artist, is to learn the history of your medium, of your art. In this unusual, and highly original course taught by gifted educator/photographer/orator Keith Carter, you discover both famous and little-known iconoclasts — men and women who historically pushed the limits of the photographic arts to new heights.
For three different presentations on three different days, come and explore historical figures in the history of photography who pushed boundaries and conventions, and expanded our visual vocabulary. If your goal is to elevate your work, then consider elevating your thinking by broadening your definition of what constitutes “creative work.” Join Keith Carter on a free spirited and enjoyable journey of discovery.
A 10 to 15 minute Question and Answer session follows each daily presentation. Questions from the participants will be reviewed and a few selected during this informal wrap-up conversation.
Open to anyone interested in this special program.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for one month after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after one month to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
