Registration is closed

Last winter in “Photographers We May Have Missed,” we found that about 80% were female, so in this class we will focus on that demographic. (There's no need to have taken the previous class.)

We will take a fairly fast look at photographers from the past, recent times, and currently working to get an overview of who we may have missed, or want to revisit. These may include Marcia Bricker Halperin, Graciela Iturbide, Imogen Cunningham, and Carrie Mae Weems.

Plenty of web links and some book suggestions will be given for each so you can continue your explorations, thanks to the internet and our library system.

Additionally, we will have fun with some experimentation analyzing a few individual photos, to both appreciate the motivations of the artist, and to understand what we might use if we take photos ourselves.
