Visualising the Environment
– A Reflective Lens on Environmental Photography
Photographic images shape perceptions and the ways in which we understand the environment.
This highly interactive workshop explores a wide range of environmental themes through an illustrated seminar, active discussion, image critique, demonstration of techniques and a practical field trip. It goes beyond the literal representations of ‘nature photography’ to address the thought processes behind creating compelling and meaningful images and visual stories.
The workshop assists participants to improve the impact and interpretative power their images. In particular, it explores the visual tensions between aesthetics, ecology and conservation. It is suitable for people with all levels of environmental knowledge and photographic skill (although participants would be expected to know how to operate their cameras).
Supplementary notes will be provided.
