Berger said, 'every image embodies a way of seeing... every time we look at a photograph, we are aware, however slightly, of the photographer selecting that sight from an infinity of other possible sights.' How are we looking at the world reflects who we are as creators. In this workshop, we are using the camera to look deep in ourselves. Through studying the works of others and creating our own work, not only can we develop visual literacy but also discover our strengths and qualities, ask difficult questions about ourselves and find our own answers. This course is for anyone who is interested in challenging your current photographic practices, explore your subconscious self, develop a more intimate relationship with yourself, or even just to learn about photography. It is a stepping stone to personal vision and building your own body of work.
