Barefoot Workshops presents “The Mississippi Delta” a one week documentary photography workshop with Ron Haviv.
Housed at The Shack Up Inn with classes held at Coahoma County Higher Education Center in the famous Mississippi Delta, participants will photograph a theme over a week in the life of this timeless landscape with individualized mentoring from the Barefoot Workshops instructor, Ron Haviv.
Learning how to tell a story well will move your audience, which is both exciting and a humbling experience. Students learn that the artist becomes “the keeper” of a person’s story. Your subject will entrust you with their story and it becomes your responsibility to honestly tell that story.
At Barefoot Workshops, you stand in cotton fields and listen to stories about the difficult life of sharecroppers, you sit on the banks of the Mississippi River, you hang out in a juke joint and hear sounds that have defined American music. You are part of history in an incredibly rich area of the United States.
