In this one-day workshop, students will discuss the ideas and practices behind fostering a long term photographic project. Participants should bring one or more photographic series that they have been working on for a period of time and are looking for guidance on how to “grow” their project. The group will participate in a dialogue that is self-critical and encourages reflection. Richard will make suggestions and provide tools to help build a strong and lasting photographic series.  He will present both renowned and lesser-known photography projects for discussion and examination.  The group will deliberate regarding the “why” and inspiration behind the themes in each of the participants work as well as developing confidence in remarking upon and developing an opinion about their colleague’s work.  This workshop is ideal for anyone looking to further develop their photography through dialog and direct feedback of an existing series of photographs.

Richard Renaldi was born in Chicago in 1968. He received a BFA in photography from New York University in 1990. He is represented by Benrubi Gallery in New York and Robert Morat Galerie in Berlin. Five monographs of his work have been published, including Richard Renaldi: Figure and Ground (Aperture, 2006); Fall River Boys (Charles Lane Press, 2009); Touching Strangers (Aperture, 2014); Manhattan Sunday (Aperture, 2016); I Want Your Love (Super Labo, 2018). He was the recipient of a 2015 fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

This workshop is limited to 18 participants.
