“The digital age gives documentary photographers and photojournalists extraordinary new ways to tell stories with greater authorship and control. This seminar will allow you to share your work in an intimate session and learn how to create a personal documentary project for publication, books, exhibitions, and websites. The seminar will emphasize developing personal vision and unique styles. Kashi will use as examples some of his personal projects, including his seminal work on Aging in America and recent work on the Kurds in Iraq, India, and the Niger Delta for National Geographic. He will show how to develop an idea, get funding, get access, determine your goals, and most importantly disseminate your work to create an impact on the subject, issue, and society. Attendees will be expected to bring up to 20 images or a 3-minute multimedia piece for a group critique during the workshop.”

March 8th, Boston: “Dialogue with Photographs” Jeff Jacobson and David Strick

Photographic Resource Center at Boston University
Dialogue with Photographs: Jeff Jacobson and David Strick

Tuesday, March 8, 7 pm
BU Photonics Building, Room 206
8 St. Mary’s Street, Boston
Members: $10 | Non-members: $15 | Students: $5

“Jeff Jacobson’s photography, featured in the PRC exhibition Melting Point derives some of its power from its astute observations of contemporary popular culture, and some from its dreamlike evocations of chaos and spatial disorientation. In a conversation with his friend, Los Angeles-based photographer David Strick, Jacobson will delve into the thoughts and provocations that have inspired his work over the last thirty-five years. Strick, whose photographs of the Hollywood landscape were seen at the PRC in 1994 and featured regularly in Premiere, Hollywood Reporter, and the Los Angeles Times, will include his own work in the mix, creating a dialogue on screen and in the voices of the two photographers.”

About the Exhibition:

Melting Point reflects over 20 years of Jeff Jacobson’s observations of what he describes as “a meltdown period, when old norms of politics, religion and even photography are changing…. In working from the paradox of a curious melding of beauty and fear these photographs emerged.”

While photographing the American presidential campaign in 1976 Jacobson began using color film—Kodachrome, particularly—in innovative ways, branching out from the black-and-white norms that dominated documentary-style photography at the time.”
