G44: Field of Vision – Mapping the Portfolio
This workshop is presented by Gallery 44 – click here to register through Eventbrite.
This Gallery 44 workshop hosted by curator/artist/photo editor Liz Ikiriko will discuss approaches to sequencing and flow development for portfolios and/or series. Ikiriko has spent the past 15 years giving critical feedback to editorial, commercial and fine art photographers. The workshop will be an opportunity to consider ideas and projects in development, receive advice on the presentation of your portfolio or exhibition with a focus on narrative, editing and sequencing. The goal is to support the participants ability to visually communicate their intended narratives and concepts with specific fields of interest in mind. The latter portion of the workshop will be open to discussion and collective trouble-shooting so participants should come prepared with working portfolios and/or series.
