Event Description

Offered in tandem with Deana Lawson, this online photography class will prompt participants to construct distinctive smartphone photographs that speak to notions of identity, representation, and human relationships. Led by Nydia Blas, the class will explore the opportunities and technical possibilities inherent in using smartphone cameras and the ways we can fashion images that convey information—true or untrue—about ourselves and others.  

Please note this is a virtual program. This class will meet on Wednesdays, October 26, November 2, 9, 16, and 30, and December 7 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There will be no class on November 23. Zoom details will be sent prior to the first class, and the same link will be used throughout the course.  

For more information, please email or call 404-733-5034.
