It was a really special weekend around here. A new and experimental workshop was taught by the wonderful Ernestine Ruben. We have been conversing about it for months and I was thrilled to see it in action. It was called The Female Eye: Women Seeing Women. This was an all female figure class focused on discussing how the female gaze is different from a male gaze, how it is formed through our experiences and how to express it in photographs- especially when making images about the nude figure.
Overall this topic is very important and can be explored in numerous ways. Hopefully this workshop is the start of a new yearly (if not more often) tradition.
