Seeing Kuerner Farm: Photography Workshop with Jim Graham
Join award-winning photographer Jim Graham to explore Kuerner Farm, where Andrew Wyeth found intriguing subjects for hundreds of tempera paintings, watercolors and drawings for more than 70 years. Photographers of all skill levels will have the rare opportunity to explore this National Historic Landmark under the guidance of a professional photographer, while discussing Wyeth’s creative process and how to develop one’s own process and artistic voice. Participants will learn about different photographic techniques and approaches, while, much like Wyeth did, taking time to see and just be in this special environment.
This program is limited in size to ensure all participants receive individualized instruction. Participants are responsible for providing their own photographic equipment (DSLR cameras are recommended but any type of camera may be used; bringing a laptop is recommended for processing and reviewing images). Participants will meet at Kuerner Farm; directions will be emailed upon registration.
All registrants will be automatically entered into a raffle to win one of two open edition prints by Jim Graham. Winners will be announced at the event.
I think a person permeates a spot, and a lost presence makes the environment timeless to me, keeps an area alive. It pulsates because of that.
