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.
ELINOR CARUCCI received her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem before moving to NYC, where she currently lives and works. Her intimate color photographs of her family and self are celebrated worldwide for their emotional honesty and personal draw. Ms. Carucci’s work has been exhibited internationally at the Gagosian Gallery in London, Ricco/Maresca Gallery in NYC, the Prague House of Photography, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in NYC; and collected by the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, the International Center for Photography in NYC, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Houston Museum of Fine Art. Carucci’s monographs include Closer and Diary of a Dancer. Additionally her images have appeared in books Sleep, MaleFamale, Love and Desire by Chronicle; and magazines New York Times Magazine, New Yorker, W, Vogue, New York, PDN, Elle, American Photo, among others.
