Summer Photojournalism Lab: Democracy in NYC
May 23–June 2, 2016
Instructors: Lauren Walsh (NYU Gallatin) and Ron Haviv (Emmy-nominated, award-winningphotojournalist and cofounder of VII Photo Agency)]
This summer, Gallatin professor Lauren Walsh and renowned photojournalist Ron Haviv will lead an intensive photojournalism and documentary photography workshop in which current NYU students and recent Gallatin alumni will be trained as visual documentarians. The thematic focus is “Democracy in New York City.”
Skills taught include how to write and promote a project proposal for professional publication; developing a better eye (and better camera skills) for taking stronger pictures; how to think like an editor and edit down to the essential photos; and developing a personal project that has resonance with larger social matters.
Those with an interest or background in photojournalism, photography, social justice, and urban studies are encouraged to apply. Those who have experience with photography will be given admissions preference. The application is online.
