Photographic Vision: BlackAndWhiteAndColor(ed)
Four workshops with photographer Accra Shepp.

In this four-week photography workshop, students will work together to find new ways to engage photographically with the community in and around Crown and Prospect Heights. The goal will be to make images that step outside the everyday, to create photographs that are unconcerned with what one expects to see and instead uncover what was there all along, unobserved.  Taught by photographer Accra Shepp; presented by BPL Presents and the International Center for Photography.

Camera-equipped cell phone required.
Students should set up Instagram accounts prior to first session.

This course is geared toward teens and young adults.
Seating is extremely limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Session 2 focuses on:
"Practice working with the community Part I"

Working in groups of two or three, you will be assigned an area to photograph for two hours. The site will be a store or business where people typically talk and hang out. You can photograph outside and inside. You will have the permission of the store owner.

Return to the Library to review work. Upload images to Instagram
