Mother, Father by Son, Daughter Workshop: Experiential Family portraits. Concepts & Practice.
15 & 22 September 2019

Perhaps the most difficult of portraiture subjects are family members. Because of over-familiarity, personal circumstances or other barriers, we tend not to photograph our closest relations with the same attention or enthusiasm as strangers at times. In this workshop, we will examine through discussions to create concepts and storylines that develop into portrait studies of your parents and family members. Participants will plan and execute home portrait sessions based on the concepts and present them in Session 2 to the group.

Led by Nadirah Zakariya and Steven Lee

Session 1 - Sunday 15 September, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
Session 2 - Sunday 22 September, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

Experimental Self Portraits with Nadirah Zakariya

11AM, 28 September 2019

The concept of the ‘self’ in auto-portraits has been the subject of many influential artists and photographers in modern times. The idea that one may ‘project’ many different personas through self-examination, artistic expressions and false identities with the self-portrait has allowed photographers like Cindy Sherman to create visionary projects that have achieved critical acclaim. 

This one-day fun workshop will enable each participant to break down the barriers of making challenging auto-portraits with the help and prompts from the other participants and facilitator. A digital camera and tripod (optional) required.

Led by Nadirah Zakariya
