This winter the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York has expanded its recently launched online education program. Now students from around the world can further their photographic interests and participate in this creative community. Classes meet in weekly live sessions (webinars) for instructor-led critiques and lectures. To ensure that students receive a qualitative learning experience, enrollment in each course is limited to a small number of students. There are six courses available and feature in-depth discussions with fellow students and ICP’s exceptional faculty, including VII Agency photojournalist Ed Kashi (booked up) and South Africa based photographer Jonathan Torgovnik. Classes meet weekly in live sessions for instructor-led lectures and critiques.
• Documentary Photography Project: Story Telling and Photo Essay
• March 3–May 12 | Mondays | 12–2 pm EST | Jonathan Torgovnik
‘Realizing there is no set formula for a successful documentary project is the first step toward starting one. In this workshop, we discuss the conceptual planning, dedication, and sacrifice that go into a personal documentary photo project. We look at the many ways one can approach such a project, both long term and short, and discuss ways of coming up with story ideas, researching and executing them, and getting them published. During weekly online sessions and critiques, examples of projects by contemporary photographers are reviewed as well as the origins of the traditional photo essay. The goal is to start or develop an existing project and take it to the next level of execution.’
