 Seminar 101

The Photo Essay: Telling a Story Through Images with Mark Edward Harris


© Mark Edward Harris

If a single picture is worth a thousand words, imagine the value of a well planned and executed photo essay. This presentation explores the creation and sequencing of images in the tradition of the great photo essayists by examining both the creative methods and practical aspects that make up a picture story. You will learn the skills to produce extended photographic essays, exploring the process of producing sets of imagery that convey a story having little written narrative support. Photographs will be analyzed not only for their stand-alone content but also for their ability to introduce dynamic sequential transitions for maximum visual effect. Presentation topics will include defining a point of view, key images such as establishing shots, environmental portraits and detail shots and closing shots as part of the overall photo essay, photographic and lighting equipment techniques. Marketing photo essays and book publishing will also be discussed.

 Community Event 601

Accessing Creativity and Hope in Difficult Times with Blacklock, Kennedy, Miele, Reuter, Tenneson

Moderator Adam Stoltman

The last two years have tested us in ways we could never have expected.  In addition to the health and economic challenges we have all been facing, isolation from quarantine, lockdowns and social distance has created an added hardship.   For artists and creatives, this has been a particularly intense time as deprived of a free exchange of energy, they have had to dig deep to find the internal resources and motivation to create, share and nurture their inner spark which is central to the creative process, as well as in many cases find new ways to generate work and income.  In this panel discussion with visual artists from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we talk openly about what strategies they have employed to keep their creative flames burning through this time, what they have learned, how they have grown and what advice they can offer to audience wrestling with similar issues.

Catherine Leroy’s War and Peace with Robert Pledge

Catherine Leroy in operation with the Marines, The Vietnam War, 1966
Dotation Catherine Leroy

Glowingly rediscovered, the late-Catherine Leroy appears so powerfully unique as two recent books reveal: Elizabeth Becker’s You Don’t Belong Here (2021) and Mary Cronk Farell’s Close up on War (2022) uncover how intrepid and courageous the very young and petite French lens-woman was, who worked primarily for American media (AP, Life, Look and Time) as a freelancer during the height of the war in Vietnam (1966/1968). She spent more time covering combat than any of her often-unfriendly male journalist colleagues working in a country where she was then the sole female “war photographer.” In 1975, she flew to Saigon to witness the end of the conflict, and five years later to a re-united country finally at peace.” Leroy offers us, in a most personal way, the whole story of the devastating conflict,” Robert Pledge will explain to us.
