Elinor Carucci at CPW

I had such a great time at UMass last night. Joetta and Megan put together beautiful thesis exhibitions. I am so happy for them. It is always good to be back on the UMass turf. I still think about how great my experiences were there. I honestly never imagined myself as a mascot for my school, but I have most definitly turned into one. Go Umass!

Joetta and I talked a bit about Elinor Carucci last night which reminded me to share her workshop information with you. This is going to be an incredible & unique weekend at CPW. I am looking forward to it and hope that any of you who might be interested will sign up and join us. There is still limited space available! If you are interested, give us a call at 845-679-9957 or check out our website on how to register by mail.

JUNE 28-29

How do we photograph our private lives? How do we picture the personal? This two-day intensive workshop is designed for those interested in using photography in a diaristic fashion to explore your personal vision of your life, what you are most close to, and what you want to get close to with your camera. Whether you are currently making portraits, creative dramas, documentary, editorial, or even fashion – this is a class about making art from inside your life and creating work that is intimate and personal.

Combining in-depth discussions, portfolio review, assignments, and presentations, this class will examine the practical, stylistic, technical, emotional, and moral issues surrounding personal narrative, as well as the delicate boundaries inherent in creating honest and intimate photographs of family, friends, and self. You will become more knowledgeable about some of the most important contemporary work made in this vein today and Elinor will also share how to bridge personal creative work with professional assignments. You will leave this weekend with new directions, confidence, and above all encouragement to follow your instincts and passions to strengthen your vision and voice.

ELINOR CARUCCI received her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem before moving to NYC, where she currently lives and works.
