Contemporary photographers have access to countless digital images at their fingertips. However, many artists still nourish their creativity by traveling far afield to shoot. Talented photographers can capture the unique ambience of a place and make us see it in a different light. We’ll start by looking at the ground-breaking work of greats like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Mary Ellen Mark, and then consider a few more experimental approaches to the genre. Learn about the motivations, approaches, and techniques artists use as a way to inspire your own photography.

You will:

  • Be inspired by examples of iconic travel photographers.
  • See how artists capture the unique ambiance of a place when they travel.
  • Analyze photographs closely, to discuss what factors make a travel image both personal and memorable.
