Editing and Sequencing
A well edited picture story can be like a beautifully composed piece of music, made of up different notes, crescendos and finales. Photographers working on a long term project are invariably faced with editing and sequencing their work for presentation, which can be a difficult task without a fresh set of eyes. In this workshop, each participating photographer will be given an opportunity to edit a long term project. We’ll review and identify the most appropriate publication, website or venue for the project, and consider formal, visual and narrative structures in sequences appropriate for print, web or the gallery wall. This class is designed for advanced photographers, limited to 12 students.
About the instructor: Suzanne Revy
Suzanne Révy grew up in Los Angeles, California. After high school she moved to Brooklyn, NY where she earned a BFA in photography from the Pratt Institute. While there, she was immersed in making and printing black and white photographs. After art school, she worked as a photography editor in magazine publishing at U.S.News & World Report and later at Yankee Magazine. With the arrival of two sons, she left publishing, and rekindled her interest in the darkroom. She photographed her boys, their cousins and friends, and built three portfolios of pictures over a fifteen year period. The first, a black and white series, explored the culture and nature of childhood play. The second, made with a lo-fi plastic camera and color film, represents her own emotional response as mother and witness to their growth and development. The third, a series of color pictures made in her home as her teen sons seemed to retreat into their rooms as she studied for her recently earned MFA at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
Her work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg, MA, the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, the Workspace Gallery in Lincoln, NE, the Camera Club of NY in NewYork City, the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH, and the New England School of Photography in Boston. Her work is represented by the Panopticon Gallery in Boston, MA.
