VII Workshop: Narrative Photography with Ashley Gilbertson & Ed Kashi

September 25 - September 30

Long time friends and collaborators, Ashley Gilbertson and Ed Kashi, are known for unique approaches to stories for high profile clients including The New York Times, National Geographic, The New Yorker and NGO clients including UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders. Gilbertson and Kashi met in 2009 in New York and have been close friends ever since, seeing one another regularly for snacks, schivtzes and perhaps too many espressos. Between meals, they’ve also worked on editorial pieces together, including the award-winning It’ll Be Better Next Year and The Undecided.

Gilbertson and Kashi have taught various sold out workshops in the past, though they have never hosted a week long masterclass together. Gilbertson almost never does workshops of this length due to commitments to shooting, so this is perhaps an even rarer opportunity than usual.
The two bring unique talents to the class that participants can learn from, including thinking outside of the box, approaching strangers, making powerful images in confronting situations, and above all, how to photograph how a place feels over how it looks. The emphasis in this workshop is how to get in touch with your feelings and how to translate them into great photographs with feeling.

Anyone can make a strong photograph – as evidenced by a cursory glance at some of the 2 billion photos uploaded every day. What makes a great photograph? Emotional content. Mood. Feel. This masterclass will be beneficial to anyone looking to push the boundaries of their photography–how to capture emotion in a narrative; the image as a stand alone image; the approach itself.

This workshop will be designed from courses Gilbertson and Kashi have independently taught at institutions including International Center of Photography, Yale University, Syracuse University, Anderson Ranch Arts Center and Maine Media Workshops. Your time actually out shooting will be maximized without compromising the time for instruction and lectures and constructive critiques.

Anyone from professionals looking to hone their talents to students looking to learn new techniques are welcome, as are people looking for a New York adventure with a couple of insiders.

The program will begin with three days of preparation in narrative photography and technique in New York City’s East Village. We will conclude the workshop with three days of editing as we shoot and post production including toning and captioning. A slide show and dinner will be held for participants one the final night in President Trump’s residence on Fifth Avenue. If he reneges on his offer, then we’ll have it at Ashley’s apartment.

iDyssey book cover

In collaboration with The Eyes Magazine, Stefano De Luigi will be at Paris Photo on November 10 for an artist talk about the book iDyssey. iDyssey is a photographic project that aims to combine two extremes of our culture: past and future. The first epic novel of our (western) history transmitted through the most contemporary media; the iPhone is able to best combine today’s events with the tales of an ancient time.
