June 2 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
The Project Salon provides a space, time, and process for the purpose of creating a body of work (be it an exhibition, book, or portfolio) over a extended period of time and with the support of other photographers doing the same.
To really progress as photographers and artists we need to go deep and we need to go deep over an extended period of time. We also need the reflection and support of others who share our passion and commitment to the medium. We learn by doing and we learn by understanding how others experience our work; and in committing to work with others we find a new level of commitment to our own work.
The Project Salon meets for 12 sessions over a 6-month period, twice a month for 3-4 hours. Participants, having committed to a project, present their ongoing work to the group and receive and offer constructive reflection concerning subject, narrative, editing, final form and the general arc and feel of the work. The last 2 weeks focus on editing, collating, and final form presentations. The sessions are facilitated by Charles Purvis who offers individual mentoring and support, both technical and artistic, for each participant. We also study the work of other photographers as it pertains to our work and process. The Salon is limited to 8 participants. All photographic mediums are welcome.
