Workshop: Writing About Your Photography

Seminar

March 23 - March 30

800 Lambert Drive NE, Suite i, Atlanta, GA

Writing About Your Photography

Learn to write about your photography and craft effective and convincing artist statements. Photographer and author Micah Cash will walk you through what makes a compelling artist statement and how to articulate your process and concept for a variety of outlets including project proposals, grant applications, and long-form essays for publication. Participants will workshop their artist statements with the group and learn how to adapt their narratives for exhibitions and publication.

How to Write about Your Photography

  1. Photographers must be able to articulate their concepts and processes in compelling and clear ways. Learn how to write better artist statements, grant narratives, and project proposals.

  2. Participants should prepare a long-form artist statement (250-300 words) from a current body of work. This writing sample will be edited and discussed during the workshop.

  3. The 250-300 word writing sample will be shared with all participants.

This workshop gives you all that! Over the course of two classes, photographer, artist and author, Micah Cash walks you through a process that you can follow for future projects. You’ll emerge with a polished, concise and informative statement that gets people excited and interested in your work.

Artists should bring a copy of their most recent artist statement (if you have one) and 3-5 images from their project for context.

Tavon Taylor – The Last Rose of Summer | Artist Talk

Artist Talk

March 10

67 Shore Rd Winchester, MA

The 2020 award for the John Chervinsky Emerging Scholarship went to photographer Tavon Taylor.

Join us online in the Griffin Zoom Room on March 10th at 7pm for an evening with Tavon showcasing his creative path, and beautiful series Last Rose of Summer. The exhibition of this work is on the walls of the Griffin Museum from February 20th thru May 23rd, 2021.

The judges said, “Tavon Taylor shows an already robust practice as a recent MFA recipient with a collection of rich, cinematic imagery. He presents a powerful voice that communicates the complexities and intimacies of the artists experience as a queer Black artist. A look at the larger bodies of work solidified the world that he has built where tenderness and vulnerability reign supreme. Kinship, intimacy, and community runs through this work and Taylor both stitches together and unties these concepts with each shared interaction between photographer and subject.”

Tavon Taylor submitted The Last Rose of Summer for consideration for the scholarship. Taylor says of the body of work:

The Last Rose of Summer was Inspired much by the injustice shown within the media in 2020. Over the last few months, I’ve focused on creating images of the people closest to me. I’ve started with single portraits of my loved ones, then I grew curious about photographs before my time. I came across a photo album stored deep within my childhood home. Full of ceremonies, the city, all the people I didn’t know, and all the stories untold, the richness spilled through each image. This compelled me to dive more into my own family’s history. Through stories from my elders and found images, I’m navigating ways to dissect my own family dynamics.”

Tavon Taylor’s Statement of Purpose:

“Within the last few months, I’ve started my photo and video-based project, The Last Rose of Summer. In this body of work, I am discovering my family’s history within the DC and Maryland areas. So far, I’ve done interviews, filed archived images, make images of my loved ones, photographed our surroundings, and more. There’s so much that I’m thinking about and planning for the blossoming of this project. I’m excited to get to know more about my ancestry. I would love to be able to properly document the richness and depth that branches back far before myself. Through discovering and sharing my own lineage, I hope to create inspiring imagery celebrating the lives and legacy of those who’ve once walked this earth. In this process of discovering moments that have come before me, I am discovering myself. The last rose of summergives me the chance to proudly and boldly take control of my own narrative as a queer black man navigating in today’s social climate. In this process, I am celebrating the people in my family that I love and those that we’ve lost. In sharing these stories, with a larger audience, I hope to inspire people to value those closest to them.”

Auction

104 E 25th St New York, NY

On February 14, 1952, Swann Galleries held the first auction in the U.S. dedicated to photography. Under the direction of Vice President Daile Kaplan, the department remains committed to innovation in the medium by introducing new genres, including the first sales dedicated to photobooks and vernacular photographs in 2006 and 2014, respectively.

With more combined years of experience than any equivalent division in a major auction house, the seasoned team specializes in classical and contemporary works by master fine art photographers, as well as photographs that employ alternative and antiquarian processes, including daguerreotypes and tintypes. The department considers the photobook a foundational component of fine art photography, and offers a range of rare and limited titles each season. We also offer vernacular photographs, including snapshots, travel albums, industrial surveys, crime photography and documentary typologies.
