STORYBOOKS & SLIDESHOWS: EXPLORING THE NARRATIVE POSSIBILITIES OF PHOTOGRAPHY

While photographs rarely tell linear stories, nearly all photographers are engaged in some form of narrative practice. Whether one is sequensing photographs in a book or presenting slide in front of an audience, important narrative decisions are being made. In this two-day workshop, Alec Soth will work with students to develop and expand their narrative voices as photographers.

After a lecture by Soth on his work as a photographer, publisher and producer of slideshows, students will spend the first day sharing their work and developing a 'story pitch.' From these pitches students will spend the rest of the day and the next morning generating stories. On the second evening, students will present their finished assignments as either storybooks or slideshows.
