“Finding Meaning in Photographs of Home” – Workshop with Debora Hunter
Saturday, March 23 from 2-4PM
FORMAT: In this workshop, we will examine the ways that photographs of family members in domestic interior spaces offer deep personal significance while revealing cultural values and traditions. Presentation on photographic projects such as Rania Matar’s Girl in a Room, Boushra Atmutawakel’s Family Homes will provide insight into techniques we can employ to strengthen our own family photographs. Participants are asked to bring favorite photographs from their own family archive to share with others.
