Artist Talk

June 24

On June 24th, we will be in conversation with photographer Jocelyn Lee about her book, Sovereign.

“All my pictures begin with the body, and, ideally, nakedness. The unclothed body is our primary vessel, sensual home, and gateway to the rest of the world.” —Jocelyn Lee

Sensual. Vibrant. Self-possessed. The women visualized in Sovereign are individual yet iconic in how Jocelyn Lee chooses to frame each one, subtly shifting focus and leading the viewer to engage subject and environment equally in the immersive scenes of her creation.

This selection of images of women over 55, complemented by still-life photographs from Lee’s series “Dark Matter,” confronts messaging that pushes women to consider how we might modify, rather than embrace, the process of aging. As Lee states, “It’s time we revolutionize the image world and flood it full of real women in real bodies, feeling sensual and wonderful in their very human skin.”  The desire to accomplish this is challenged by market realities; most of the images surrounding us glorify youth. Lee’s luscious works of still lifes and portraits provide a new mirror, reflecting the beauty, strength, and resilience with which she sees women within her community.

An essay by Dr. April Watson of the Nelson-Atkins Museum places the work within contemporary art historical context.

Storytelling Through Photography Remote Learning

Event

June 25

200 N Tampa St Tampa, FL

These Zoom sessions will fully reflect the same content as with the on-ground workshops offered by the FMoPA institute. 

We all have a story to tell, a legacy or statement, a call to action, a declaration of what you believe, what makes you mad or happy, your unique observations of the world around you, your life itself with its peaks and valleys. The medium of photography makes it possible to tell your story and sometimes make a change. A picture tells a thousand words. Several pictures correctly sequenced tell a full story – your individual story.

In this workshop, you will learn the art of telling a story through creating a visual narrative. Multiple images have the power of expressing thoughts, ideas, experiences and beliefs in a linear format. Storyboarding and careful sequencing of photographs following a clear concept, your unique voice and communications to the outside world, using many case studies and background information on the starting point of any project: The Why, What, Who, and How.

We all have a unique story to share with others, it can be a powerful and quiet voice, but we have a responsibility to tell our stories as part of our background, culture, legacy and circumstances. The power of words through titles or series’ names are also explored, rounding up to a full story.

The Unique Print – Gel Emulsion Lifts

Event

June 27

200 N Tampa St Tampa, FL

Creating the Unique Print – A One-Day, Three-Hour Workshop blending analogue processes and digital technology with David Dürbak

 Offering a small group of students and photographers a practical introduction to emulsion transfers with hands-on training on how to successfully prepare transfer image files, print the images to be transferred on dedicated “negative” film media, and prepare both waterleaf paper and a wood block as image transfer receptors, this workshop will have each participant delving into creating professional quality artistic images to keep and bring back home.

 

When working with emulsion transfer prints, the most important thing to remember is how different the process is from other photography processes and how the value of that process is unique. The process allows each photographer to slow down, thinking about each individual photograph, while learning to love those happy accidents.

 

Part I – Exploring What’s New in Chemicals, Media, Processes, and Techniques

  1. Tips and techniques with the new receiver films
  2. Tips and techniques with digital files

 

Part II – Exploring Concepts, Media, and Substrates

  1. Demonstration of emulsion transfers
  2. Hands-on experimentation with emulsion transfers

 

Materials provided: CD with analogue style image borders, pre-printed film media, transfer gel medium, waterleaf paper, wood panels
