A photograph is said to be worth a thousand words. A photographic documentary project exploring a social, cultural, political or personal issue has the power to tell a story in a unique, convincing and visually compelling way.

In this workshop, the participants examine and practice the various aspects of conceptualizing, planning, and executing their documentary projects through discussion, field trips, personal assignments, and photo critiques.

Topics will include: selecting and defining a subject; research, planning, and production; establishing contact and gaining access; storytelling and photographic strategies; collecting data; writing captions; and story overview. Documentary essays by master and contemporary photographers will also be discussed.

Participants are expected to participate in multiple visits to the selected topic area and to present the progress of their work on weekly reviews.
