Lyrical Documentary workshop
The great American photographer Walker Evans gave a lecture at Yale University in 1964 entitled Lyric Documentary. The word “lyric” suggests subjective and personal emotions, and “documentary” suggests the objective recording of facts. During the workshop, the students will focus on making work that describes the world but which also describes something of the photographer’s psyche and temperament. We will review work from past projects that students have brought with them and also edit and discuss photographs taken during the workshop. In addition, Mark will talk about his own work and influences. We will look at the American tradition and the French tradition, as well as contemporary photography from around the world. The aim is to help the students connect more deeply to their own practice and to consider their work within a more expanded context.
