Visual Studies Workshop has the Summer Institute running for the month of July.

I am teaching the Extended Landscape June 29-July 3.


Keith Johnson

Sometimes the single photograph does not aptly describe the idea; sometimes the idea is about
the form of the presentation.Over the course
of five days we will examine what an extended landscape is, how to make use of the
properties of the medium and create extended landscapes. Whether these are installations,
books, topologies, or extended images, the investigation into the real or personal landscape
will be about picture making. There will be critiques, lectures, field trips, and lots of
photographing, journal writing, and idea generation. Photographers and image makers
may work in B&W or color, digital or in film, the goal is to work and to work hard.
