The Art of Seeing – October 7, 2015 10:30 – noon
with Quinton Gordon
The simple act of looking at the world around us and making photographs that express our emotional response to what we see opens new avenues of connection and creativity.
This short workshop with Quinton Gordon focuses on ways to heighten our sense of personal connection through a simplified approach to photography. Using low fidelity, simple cameras removes the technical barriers of image making, allowing us to focus on creative, visual, and emotional exploration. During the workshop Quinton will lead the group through a discussion on how a simple camera can be used to great effect followed by a one hour photo-walk.
Quinton Gordon is a visual artist, photographer and educator who has used his camera as a means to explore the world for over 30 years. These explorations have taken him around the world on assignments for international publications and clients but his most important photographs are made right here in his own backyard. In 2012 he published Mile Zero: A Place Uncertain, a handmade monograph from a three year personal project that explores his connection to place. He is currently working on a follow up book, Personal Fiction. Quinton lives in Victoria with his wife, daughter and a growing collection of animals.
