Students arrive September 14, 8pm, leave September 16, 5pm
All Levels

LEARN MORE

To craft a line in a poem is to manage a construction within the space between self and readership. At our best, writers are able to architect a bridge between what we feel or think —that impulse that caused us to create—and what is possible to convey to an outsider.  This intimate, quiet class is a dialogue on the image-based language at the root of our impulses. A tiny selection from Christopher Alexander’s architectural text, The Timeless Way of Building, will be offered as a discussion parallel between the engineering of our physical world and the artisinal structuring of the poetic image.

WORKSHOP: Wet Plate Collodion Photography

Wet Plate Collodion Photography
5 Day workshop w/ Jonathan Sadler

July 09 – 13, 2018 (5 Day + 6 Night)
Students arrive July 08, 8pm, leave July 14
All Levels

LEARN MORE

Jonathan Sadler returns to The Atlanta School for a third year.  In his workshop, students will study wet plate collodion photography (tintypes). Using this nineteenth-century photographic process, photographers like William Henry Jackson would hike, packing a substantial amount of photographic gear on a donkey, to the tops of mountains and would then expertly pour the collodion onto the plate, sensitize the plate with silver, expose and process the plate all before it dries. Taking inspiration from Henry and his cronies working in remote wilderness and primitive western towns we will experience wet plate processes in the similar surroundings of Atlanta, Idaho.  

This process requires longer exposures so we will concentrate on architecture and inanimate objects but will explore portraiture as well.

Artist Offering with Eli Craven

Artist Offering with Eli Craven

Eli Craven is an artist born in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He currently lives and works in Champaign, Illinois, where he teaches photography at the University of Illinois. His work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally, most recently at the Capture Photography Festival in Vancouver, in the book Unlocked published by Atopos CVC in Athens Greece, and The Age of Collage Vol. 2 published by Gestalten in Berlin Germany.

Craven’s work explores the role of images and objects within the development of identity, memory, and desire. The acts of looking and collecting are central to his process. Each project begins with the search for redeemable sources at estate sales, thrift stores, and other second hand markets. Through various methods of manipulation, the materials are charged with new possibilities directed at the senses - the familiar, the bizarre, the boring, the erotic. The reclaimed materials combined with his own personal additions become sculptural assemblages intended to provide new narratives.
