Scholarship Application Deadline: November 29, 2014
No fee to apply.
About the Workshop: January 17-19, 2014
“Do you know where you’re going next with your photography –– or where it’s taking you? This intensive weekend workshop will help photographers begin to understand their own distinct way of seeing the world. It will also help photographers figure out their next step photographically –– from deepening their own unique vision to the process of discovering and making a long-term project that they’re passionate about, as well as the process of how long-term projects evolve into books and exhibitions. A workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, it will be taught by Alex and Rebecca, a creative team who often edit projects and books together.
Open to all photographers 18 and older, professionals and serious amateurs alike. Work by all kinds of photographers will be considered — from art photographers to documentary photographers, from college students to seasoned professionals — the only stipulation being that none of the images submitted have been dramatically altered digitally.
Judges: MaryAnne Golon (Washington Post Director of Photography) and photographers Maggie Steber, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb.

France Scully Osterman: The Light at Lacock
Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:30 pm
Admission: $10 General | $5 members & students | Free for BU community & PRC member institutions
“France Scully Osterman will discuss her first collaboration with her husband, Mark Osterman, The Light at Lacock: Sun Sketches at the Twilight of Photography, currently on display at the PRC in The Doors of Perception. The couple created a collection of paper negatives using William Henry Fox Talbot’s original process of photogenic drawing and his earliest camera designs. They trod the same ground as the inventor in the village of Lacock, England, and revisited the miracle of the first chemical sketches made by nature alone. Along the way the couple made some discoveries of their own. Limitations of the early process and an inclement climate eventually guided the Ostermans to concentrate on photographing the effect of light that surrounds a subject rather than that which illuminates it. The results are painterly but also fugitive. As in Talbot’s time, the same light that created these images also destroys them. And so, it is only by the ironic marriage with the digital pigment print that now displaces photography that these colorful sun sketches can be exhibited for the first time.”
