Shift: Recontextualizing Your Archive

The last couple of months have profoundly shaken up how most of us live, work, and create—compelling us to question our relationship with our earlier photographic work. How do we contextualize our past work when the world doesn’t look the same? Images of pedestrians at rush hour or of friends lazily throwing their arms around each other, now find new meaning. Join artist and HCP instructor, Violette Bule, to sort through your photos and start unearthing their potential for new projects. Through ongoing assignments and group critique, students will develop new projects. Whether you are just getting started or are a seasoned professional, this class will inspire you to use photography for creative expression and intellectual reflection.
