Taking Space: Professional Development for Women in Photo

This course is designed to be a supportive space for women and nonbinary people and help them navigate the ups and downs of creating, working, and thriving in the photo world. With an emphasis on community building, students will receive guidance on sharing their work, finding spaces to show, writing grants, and writing and polishing their CVs. Through readings, discussions, and assignments, students will work with visiting Artist Sadie Cornette Cook to discover how to find their people and show their work. Anyone of any photographic level is welcome. Come with a portfolio or a project that you are looking to share.

Sadie Cornette Cook lives and works in Reykjavik, Iceland. She takes anxious pictures around touch and delicacy, assault, and desire. Her work has been published and shown nationally and internationally. Her work is included in books held at MOMA, Yale Haas library, the Tate, and more. Sadie teaches at the School of Visual Arts and the School of Photography in Reykjavik.
