Come create altered photo collages and see why William Mortensen was a maverick of photography. While the Mortensen School of Photography may no longer be around, his legacy and methods of photo manipulation live on with the current trends seen in social media Instagram accounts and the use of Adobe Photoshop in mainstream media. In this workshop, use analog methods to alter a found photograph or image with the use of paint pens and hand cut collage. Make sure to head over to the Photography & Seduction: William Mortensen’s Laguna Beach exhibit for inspiration and notice why he is infamous for his manipulation of images and dark and grotesque subject matter. Supplies included with ticket. Feel free to bring your own printed-out photos to add to your collage.
Advanced tickets recommended. Limited space available.
