The Center for Fine Art Photography
This workshop offers an exciting investigation into failure in photography. We will discover and debate the complexities, challenges, and benefits of failure. We will look at and learn from flaws, imperfections, rejects, and errors. We will encourage thinking about failure in positive, unexpected, inspirational, and low-fi ways. We will learn about artists who are motivated by errors, uncommon methods, and breaking rules. The course includes presentations, discussions, in-class activities and independent work. There will be an emphasis on using and subverting everyday tools and materials.
