A brand-new workshop will soon be available thanks to the High Museum of Art. In tandem with their new exhibition Deana Lawson, explore the ins-and-outs of smartphone photography at this virtual class. You’ll be encompassing themes seen throughout the exciting addition to their line-up of unmissable exhibitions.
Deana Lawson delves into the artist’s renowned collection of photographs, boasting a plethora of important themes specifically related to conventional representation of Black identities, such as family, spirituality, sexuality and identity.
This incredible workshop will encourage you to tackle similar themes related to your own life and personality. Best of all, you won’t need any professional equipment with this course encouraging using nothing more than what you have in your pocket.
Led by Nydia Blas, the class will explore the opportunities, possibilities, and technique inherent in using smartphone cameras. Nydia Blas is a visual artist who grew up in Ithaca, New York, but currently resides here in the ATL. She works as a freelance photographer, collaborating with major names like The New York Times, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker!
Expect to explore the ways we can fashion and manufacture images that convey information—true or untrue—about ourselves, others, and concepts.
This virtual course will take place online, meeting on Wednesdays, October 26, November 2, 9, 16, and 30, and December 7 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There will be no class on November 23. Zoom details will be sent before the first class.
