Katrin Koenning on Narrative and Place: toward new visual imaginaries
Over the course of two consecutive days I will guide participants along photographic thinking and exploration of our physical and emotional connection to place and environment, and to that which surrounds us. Studying a variety of narrative histories as well as theoretical and practical methodologies and challenges to land and place-based image making, the course will draw on notions of photographic practice as a ‘being-in-the-world’. I will provide in-depth insight into my own working processes and influences as well as intensive portfolio reviews of each participant’s individual work.
